Increased Security At Reedy Creek Elementary Following Threatening Video Posts
CHARLOTTE, NC — CMS has increased security at Reedy Creek Elementary following threatening posts on social media earlier this week.
According to officials, someone not associated with the school posted several videos on social media sites that threatened “war” on Reedy Creek and said that there would be “blood in the streets.” The videos were reported to CMPD Monday afternoon.
According to investigators, no specific threat to any particular person was found.
Officials at Reedy Creek Elementary say extra security is patrolling the school, and CMPD is continuing to investigate the threats.
The following message was sent to parents at Reedy Creek Wednesday:
“Good afternoon Reedy Creek families,
