Threat leads to added school security
PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – The Prince Edward County Sheriff’s office increased patrols at Prince Edward High School this morning in response to a threat.
The threat, according to Sheriff Wesley Reed, involved a student bringing a gun to school. Sheriff Reed said no weapons were found nor was there any probable cause for an arrest.
The incident is being handled through school discipline, the sheriff added.
A concerned parent called the CBS 6 newsroom to ask why parents were not informed of the threat before the school day started. She said the threat was made on Facebook.
