— Enloe High School was released from a lockdown Friday afternoon after police dealt with reports of a suspicious person on campus and a false bomb threat.

School administrators ordered a code red lockdown after receiving an unconfirmed reports of a suspicious person around 1 p.m., said Bill Poston, a spokesman for the Wake County Public School System.

Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue said the caller said a suspended student was on the grounds of Enloe.

School security officers and Raleigh police searched the high school and did not find anything out of place.

Administrators called off the lockdown and released students at 2:20 p.m. School normally lets out at 2:15 p.m.

Placing the school on lockdown, in which students are confined to their classrooms, followed standard procedure when a school gets reports of suspicious people, Poston said.

Earlier Friday morning, Enloe received a bomb threat. Police determined that call was a hoax.

Officials would not say the two incident were connected. The investigation into both incidents was ongoing.
