A juvenile has been charged with threatening to commit violence at an area school. Last Tuesday (September 21) an Iredell County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer was notified after school hours, of a possible threat of mass violence at Lake Norman High School.
The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Threat Assessment Detective was notified. She immediately began to investigate this possible threat. Through this investigation detectives were able to determine the information was shared through social media “Snapchat” and was overheard on a bus.
