Stephen King may be known best for his truly terrifying stories, but something tells us this is NOT the way he had hoped to scare anyone EVER!
A TV adaptation of the author's sci-fi/horror tale Under the Dome is currently in production in Wilmington, North Carolina, and apparently, the CBS show's crew neglected to inform an elementary school a few hundred yards away from their set that they were filming a scene that involved a fake gunfight!
So when shots rang out, the

FAKE! Thank goodness!
Earlier we reported that a Bronx Elementary School was under lockdown after police received a call from inside the establishment regarding students who were possibly armed…
But it turns out that the "armed" student was simply carrying a harmless Nerf gun!!
The confusion occurred because a school employee overheard a 12-year-old boy tell his friend he was carrying a "gun," prompting the employee to immediately inform a school administrator.
No official charges are being brought against the boy, but he MAY get in trouble with his school.
Bajeebus! Even fake guns cause real panic!
We're just happy that this was all a huge misunderstanding and ended up being NO cause for alarm.

T.I. is the ultimate redemption story of how to repair one's image after being incarcerated.
But the rapper may now be back in trouble!
Many fans have noticed that T.I.'s new album Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head features the Atlanta bred rapper brandishing a firearm in wake of the recent Sandy Hook tragedy that happened less than a week ago.
Obviously this album cover was created months and months ago, but still we think it is fair to say that this might hurt the rapper's CD sales.
Will his team pull the album for a cover that is less of a painful reminder of such recent sadness?
Stay tuned to find out!!

If you were in elementary school, who would U want to act it out?
How about Darren Criss??
Well, that's just what the 4th and 5th graders of the Willow School enjoyed Saturday night as the cast of Glee took the stage to perform stories written by the children.
The New Directions gang got to play a whole different set of directions for these outrageous and adorable tales!
The event's goal was to raise funds for the Young Storytellers Foundation, co-created by Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk, that endeavors to keep the arts in schools!
And what's a better argument for keeping the arts in school than Glee?

So many haters!
Once again Kody Brown and his wives are victims of prejudice.
Some parents are crazy pissed that TLC's Sister Wives camera showed up at an after-school fundraiser at the elementary school Kody's kids attend. Their saying the cameras represented an invasion of privacy, and are demanding the local school district revamp its on-campus filming policies.
Here's why we disagree:
