Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Law enforcement officials are on scene at Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School Monday morning after video was found showing a student with “what appears to be a firearm,” according to the school’s interim principal.

Luther Thomas, the school’s interim principal, posted a letter on the school’s website that said officers “are currently on campus to investigate and ensure the safety of our students.”

The law enforcement presence is in response to a video featuring a student at the school carrying what looked like a gun. Thomas said in the letter that the student has been identified.

“I appreciate your patience today as we worked through our investigation. We wanted to be sure that we had all the information before sharing any updates with the public. Please know that we will continue to take every measure to ensure the safety of our students,” Thomas wrote.
