12 Year-Old Linked To Threat Of Violence At Wayne County School

GOLDSBORO – A 12 year-old juvenile has been linked to a threat of violence at Dillard Middle School. On Tuesday, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office was notified of an email sent to the school threatening harm to both students and staff.

The sheriff’s office, with the assistance of the FBI, immediately investigated the threat.

That same day, a 12 year-old was charged on a juvenile petition with two counts of making a false report of mass violence on educational property. The youth was released to their parent.

At no time were the students or staff in any danger due to the threats being made, officials said Friday in a press release.
