‘See something, say something’: DA praises mom for reporting school threat


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Bryce Sheehan was charged after the Pender County Sheriff’s Office received a tip from Sheehan’s mother. She told deputies her son was possibly in route to the school with a firearm.

It is a call District Attorney Ben David says he is thankful for.

David says that call is the main reason a possible crisis was averted.

One thing he wants this to be is an example for if you see something, say something.

David says this shows the seriousness of these threats.

“Parents who are struggling with keeping a tab on their kids and understand that they have all these cocktails of issues they need to reach out for help and I applaud that mother for doing that,” David said.

He encourages other parents, students and anyone else who might see something that poses a threat to follow in this mothers footsteps.

David says it is everyone’s responsibility to keep the schools and the community safe.
