UPDATE: No bomb found at West Virginia State Capitol Complex


After a frantic night at West Virginia State Capitol Complex, no explosive device was found.

Wednesday evening, someone called 911 saying there was a man with a gun on capitol grounds saying he had a bomb.

Multiple law enforcement agencies, including a bomb squad and bomb dogs, swept the capitol and the call was eventually ruled to be unfounded.
