3 teens arrested for threats to North Carolina high school


NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) — Police have arrested three teenagers accused of threatening violence against a North Carolina high school.

The New Bern Police Department says in a Friday news release that investigators were tipped off Wednesday to threats of a violent attack at New Bern High School. Police said two 17-year-olds were charged with communicating threats, and a 16-year-old was charged with simple affray, meaning he caused terror to the public.

Police say none of the three are students at the school.

News outlets reported that extra police were at the high school on Thursday after the threats were discovered on social media the night before.
