911 Caller Threatens Mass Shooting, Bombing At Elementary School

Selma-Elementary-School-Image-FIWTSB News has uncovered new details about last week’s bomb threat hoax at a Johnston County school.

Around 3:25am on Tuesday, October 20th, the Johnston County 911 Center received a call from an individual claiming a bomb had been planted at Selma Elementary School.

The caller said he was planning to kill his parents then go to school and kill as many people as possible before detonating the bomb.

The 911 Center was able to trace the phone call to a residence in Selma where police responded and spoke to someone at the home then searched the residence.  No immediate evidence was located connecting the person at the home to the 911 call, WTSB News has learned.

Selma Police Captain R.L. Daniels told WTSB News on Monday they are coordinating their investigation with Johnston County School officials.

Tracey Peedin Jones, Public Information Officer, with Johnston County Schools, said the threat was thoroughly investigated by police and determined as unfounded prior to the opening of school. At all times staff and students were safe.
