Johnston County authorities announced Monday an online threat of violence at a Johnston County public school was ‘not credible.’
Sunday night around 7:15pm, a social media post was reportedly found indicating a student may cause a mass violence incident at Corinth Holders High School on Applewhite Road (today) Monday. The post was reported to law enforcement.
Johnston County Sheriff’s Captain Jeff Caldwell said detectives were immediately assigned to the case but determined through their investigation overnight the threat was not credible. Officials did not disclose any additional information.
One student was reportedly questioned about the incident overnight.
A deputy sheriff is assigned to Corinth Holders High as a resource officer. No additional officers were assigned to the school on Monday because the allegations were unsubstantiated.
