A student suspected of making a social media threat against Phillip O. Berry Academy was apprehended Wednesday morning, reports the Observer’s news partner, WBTV.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools officials and Charlotte police investigated the threat, deeming it “not credible,” WBTV reports.
CMS officials didn’t identify the culprit as a student at the school, but indicated it by saying the person accused of making the threat “will be fully disciplined in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.”
The social media threat made Tuesday night against Phillip O Berry and the school’s principal, Terra Matthews Kennedy, alerted parents of students early Wednesday.
In a follow up message sent later Wednesday morning, Kennedy told parents that police took the matter seriously and “the person responsible was quickly apprehended.”
Police have not released information surrounding the threat, WBTV reports.
