Local schools see four mass violence threats in two months

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrested and charged two Cedar Ridge High School students for communicating threats of mass violence in the last couple months, and are offering a reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the third person who threatened the school. The Chapel Hill Police Department arrested a student with the same charge in relation to a threat against East Chapel Hill High School. With four threats of mass violence in two local schools since September, law enforcement and school officials are stressing the importance of communication in responding to and preventing these situations.
