Raleigh police investigate threats against middle school

— Raleigh police said Monday they investigated online posts that threatened to harm students and teachers at Carroll Leadership and Technology Magnet Middle School on Six Forks Road.

In late December, a male student told another student that he hated everyone at the school and wanted to bomb it. He also said he planned to create an online profile called, “Carrol (sic) Middle MustDie,” police said.

On Jan. 8, a profile with that title was posted on Facebook, along with pictures of seven students and statements meant to “intimidate and torment” them, according to a search warrant.

The first post on the page said, “Hello I am part of anonymous and carrol middle school must fall and its students.”

On Feb. 7, a student told police that the young man “was very upset, hated everyone at the school” and “was going to make them all pay, and he was going to bomb the school.”

A search warrant shows police went to the student’s house and seized two computers and a phone. No material threats were found, police said. However, they did expect juvenile petitions to be filed.
