FBI, police investigating threat against Jewish school

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police and the FBI are looking for someone who issued a threat against people involved with a Jewish school in Greensboro.

Greensboro police spokeswoman Susan Danielsen said Tuesday the B’nai Shalom Day School was closed for a second day. Danielsen says a letter opened by a school official Monday “expressed a clear threat to the school and its occupants.”

She says the letter was mailed from somewhere in the Triad, and authorities are pursuing some leads but have made no arrests.

FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch says the letter included “racially charged language” and agents are investigating whether the sender could be guilty of a hate crime.

The school shares an address with the Beth David Synagogue.
