MONT ALTO, Pa. -- A man seen carrying a rifle prompted Penn State Mont Alto to lock down its buildings Thursday for about a half-hour until Pennsylvania State Police told campus officials the man was hunting groundhogs. Penn State Mont Alto spokeswoman Kristie Fry said the school used "PSU text" to notify people by cell phone, Facebook and Twitter. The school also sent out mass e-mails using internal lists. Students were included in notifications. Although classes don't start for another week, a few students have been on campus in recent days getting ready for the start of the academic year, Fry said.
