RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Leesville Road High School in Raleigh was on a code red lockdown Tuesday afternoon.

The district confirmed the lockdown to CBS 17 at approximately 11:45 a.m.

In a letter to parents, Principal Ian Soloman said law enforcement learned the threat behind the lockdown was a hoax.

“we continue to investigate to determine who was responsible for today’s events,” Soloman said. “If your child has any information, please ask them to contact the front office.”

Leesville Road Middle School was not affected by the lockdown, Wake County Schools said.

A CBS 17 crew on the scene confirmed at approximately 12:05 p.m. that the lockdown had been lifted.
