     ABINDGON, Va. (AP) - A University of Virginia-Wise student accused of falsely reporting a gunman on campus will undergo a competency evaluation.
     Bryant Alexander Hairston's arraignment had been scheduled for Thursday.
     The Bristol Herald-Courier reports that the arraignment is being postponed until after the evaluation.
     U.S. District Judge Pamela Meade Sargent approved a defense request for the evaluation last week.
     The 20-year-old Martinsville resident is accused of calling 911 on Jan. 23 and reporting that he had seen a gunman on campus. The call prompted university officials to place the school on lockdown.
