Someone tried to pull a fast one on the smartest students in the country.

A report came in about a dude with a rifle wearing body armor walking into a building on the MIT campus.

This prompted a campus-wide lock-down, street closures, and a whole bunch of cops to show up.

But – fortunately – the whole thing was a hoax. It just took officials an hour to figure that out.

But really, the only crime here is having to go to school on a Saturday.
