[Gossip] Rumored Dark Knight Rises/Sandy Hook Link Causes Virginia Public Schools to Close

Conspiracy theory suggested they were next...
Classes were cancelled in five public schools in Narrows, Virgina yesterday when an online article suggested that they may be the target of a shooting incident. THR reports that an article on RevelationNow.net, which has been since taken down, claims that a scene in The Dark Knight Rises depicts Commissioner Gordon referencing a map of attack sites. One of those sites is called Sandy Hook while the other is called Narrows. The site alleged that the schools in Narrow may be next as a result.
The story caused officials in Giles County to warn parents and cancel classes. No specific threat had been made, but Giles County Sheriff Morgan Milliron noted, "We have to take this as serious information."
Classes resumed today, albeit under increased security.
