What should have been a night of fun and memories at a senior prom ended with a rape allegation in Gilmer County.

The Sheriff told FOX 5 his office was notified of the incident by the hospital.
According school officials, three students have been named as suspects. No suspect names have been released at this time.
The three male students accused of rape did not attend graduation Friday night.
