SCOTLAND COUNTY, NC (WPDE) — Six students could now be charged in a “Columbine-style” plot against Carver Middle School in Scotland County, according to Lt. Jessica Sadonikov with the Scotland County Sheriff’s Office.
Sadonikov said the sheriff’s office has petitioned the N.C. Juvenile Justice System to charge the students with communicating threats of mass violence on school campus.
She added that they have concrete evidence that the students plotted violence against certain students and a teacher at the school.
She added this in no way is a “joke or hoax.”
The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office has been investigating since last week and the investigation is ongoing.
