Raleigh middle school evacuated after bomb threat

Posted September 23, 2014

— A 39-year-old man was arrested and charged Tuesday with calling in a bomb threat that led to the evacuation of a Raleigh middle school.

Carlos Dontherell King, of 1308 Highcourt Drive in Raleigh, is accused of calling in a bomb threat to Carnage Magnet Middle School at about 8 a.m. Tuesday. The school was evacuated, Raleigh police said.

King is charged with filing a false report for mass violence on educational property, filing a false bomb report to a public building and communicating threats.

King remained in the Wake County jail Tuesday under an $80,000 bond. His first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.

    having been in a school lobby during an "incident," these are the typical common factors:
    1. they have a child in the school
    2. there is a custody dispute, or something similar.

    let's see how this plays out.

    It's a person's last name. The full name of the school is actually: Fred J. Carnage Magnet Middle School

    Judging by his criminal past, this could have been a diversion for something else.. he's got a *long* history with Corrections.

    Who would ever agree to name a school "Carnage"??
    the killing of a large number of people.
