PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) - Two college students in Vermont have been accused of writing a message on a dry erase board about an impending active shooter situation. Police said there’s no indication of a credible threat.

Police say the students acknowledged they were responsible for the message at Landmark College in Putney, Vermont. They said there’s no indication either student had the intent or the means to carry out the threat.

They issued citations on a violation of creating a false public alarm to 22-year-old Samuel Ripper and 24-year-old Lucas Wiener. It wasn’t immediately known if they have lawyers.
