article imageNorth Carolina teen says 'a Sandy Hook' will happen at his school

By Greta McClain     Feb 1, 2013 in Crime
Charlotte - Police in Charlotte, North Carolina have arrested a 16-year-old after he allegedly left a threatening note on his calculator that referred to the Sandy Hook school shooting.
The threat was discovered Thursday afternoon when a teacher at Olympic High School found a message on a student's graphing calculator used in his algebra class. The message reportedly stated a "Sandy Hook" would happen at the school.
The teacher reported the threat to school officials and members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools system conducted a search of the school grounds Thursday evening. They found no evidence of risks of danger according to WCNC.
The student who allegedly made the threat was taken into custody and charged with falsely reporting mass violence against an educational property, which is a felony. He was also charged with a misdemeanor count of communicating threats according to the Huffington Post.
Despite officials not finding any evidence of danger on the school campus, WBTV reports parents began arriving at the school Friday morning after hearing of the threats. Many of the parents pulled their children from class for the day. It is unknown at this time if parents plan to keep their children out of class next week. There has been no additional comment from the school or Charlotte-Meckleburg School at this time.
