CLEMMONS, N.C. (WGHP) — A Winston-Salem woman was arrested on Thursday and accused of threatening to shoot up a school bus, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
A student riding a Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools bus was on the phone with a family member. While on speakerphone, the family member made threats to shoot up the bus and have other family members shoot up the bus as well.
