A Johnston County high school student has been arrested after he allegedly made threats on social media to ‘shoot up’ his high school because he was upset about a new class schedule.
The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said a concerned citizen who saw the post notified the principal at Corinth Holders High School who in turn notified law enforcement.
Dylan Axl Beagle, 17, of Percheron Drive, Zebulon was arrested Friday and charged with making a false report of mass violence on educational property. The offense is a felony.
Authorities allege Beagle posted a comment that he would bring an AR-15 and shoot up Corinth Holders because of the new schedule.
Beagle was confined in the Johnston County Jail under a $30,000 bond.
Charges Dismissed From October Arrest
In October 2017, Dylan Axl Beagle was arrested for a September 9, 2017 break-in on Logan’s Lane, Middlesex, a northern Johnston County address.
Beagle was allegedly linked by deputies to the crime after leaving his cell phone at the scene. He was arrested and charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering and misdemeanor injury to real property. Both charges were dismissed in Johnston County District Court on March 15, 2018.
At the time of his arrest in October, officials said Beagle was a student at Clayton High School.
