Authorities Investigate Online Threat Against Lenoir Schools

Classes are uninterrupted despite a potential threat of violence against Lenoir County Public Schools. The threat was posted on an internet site and a concerned citizen reported it to the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI Monday morning.  As a result, Lenoir County Sheriff Ronnie Ingram, Kinston Police Chief Alonzo Jaynes and LCPS Assistant Superintendent Nick Harvey, Jr. met and discussed the threat.  Extra law enforcement personnel were assigned to all the county’s schools.  In a Facebook post Monday afternoon, Sheriff Ingram stated there was no information at this time to determine the threat’s credibility, and law enforcement will work to determine who is responsible for posting the threat.
