— Three Wake County schools were evacuated Wednesday morning after officials were told that a middle school student might have explosives.

Students were ordered to leave Leesville Road Elementary School, Leesville Road Middle School and Leesville Road High School  shortly after 11 a.m. A student at Leesville Road Middle was rumored to have explosives in his book bag.

Police recommended that all three schools, which share a campus, be evacuated. Investigators searched the middle school and found nothing to substantiate the threat.

High school students were allowed back inside at about 12:30 p.m. Elementary and middle school students were allowed to return to their classes shortly after that.
