Henrico, VA (Newsradio WRVA) -- Henrico Police have determined a 911 call around 3 pm about an active threat at Virginia Randolph school was a hoax. Police say they have identified the person responsible, a juvenile student, who has been charged with falsely summoning law enforcement and disorderly conduct. 

The "all-clear" was given by police and students were released around 5:30 pm Wednesday following a massive response for a possible active shooter at the school on Mountain Road. SWAT officers went room to room searching for a possible gunman. Police said no one was hurt and there are no confirmed reports of gunfire.
