Wallace Community College Reacts to Virginia Tech Shootings

After the deadly shooting rampage at Virginia Tech, jitters are being felt at colleges and universities in our area.

Wallace Community College is taking a look at what they can do to protect its students.

Campus Dean Mark Shope says they have extensive emergency plans in case of an emergency.

Shope says about 10-years ago there was an issue at the school with two students where a gun was involved.

No one was injured in that incident.

A few years ago, Shope says there was a rash of bomb threats, which closed the campus.

In that situation, Wallace worked with the Dothan Police Department and FBI to ultimately arrest a suspect without incident.

Wallace has a security camera system and armed security guards on campus 24-hours a day.
