Usually, an auto-correct fail results in a little embarrassment, some misunderstanding and huge doses of laughter.

Not this one.

An auto-correct fail sent to a wrong number in Georgia resulted in a lockdown at a Georgia high school. The message sent was “Gunman be at West Hall today”, when it was meant to be “Gunna be at West Hall today”.

The wrong number added to the confusion, and the student who received the message promptly reported it to the authorities.

This must have been the most expensive auto-correct fail, ever.
