Second middle school student charged with false threats since Friday

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — For the second time in less than a week, a South Brunswick Middle School student has been charged with making a false report of a school shooting.

According to the Brunswick County Schools, a 12-year-old student said he was going to bring a gun to school and shoot people today.

Students alerted school staff and the School Resource Officer took the student into custody where he admitted to saying it, the school system says. The district believes there is no danger to students.

The student has been suspended and charged with making a false report concerning mass violence on educational property.

On Friday, another 12-year-old SBMS student was suspended and charged after allegedly telling classmate he heard there was going to be a shooting that day.

Schools spokesman Daniel Seamans said the students showed exactly what to do if they see or hear anything of concern, by immediately telling a school staff member.

“Brunswick County Schools works closely with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office so that our children can have a safe and enjoyable learning environment,” Seamans said in the release.
