— Carnage Middle School in Raleigh was on a Code Red lockdown Thursday morning after a student told administrators about rumors of an intruder near the campus.

Police officers swept the area and found no threat, officials with the Wake County Public School System said.

“We greatly appreciate the relationship we have with law enforcement and WCPSS Security in responding to such situations,” officials said in a phone message sent to parents. “They work closely with us to ensure the safety of our students every day.”

Officials said they were still investigating the incident.
