Sheriff Darren Campbell stated, on September 25, 2017 an investigation began at Lake Norman High School after the discovery of YouTube videos being posted on the internet. The videos were of graphic nature involving violent shootings from a video game and being narrated by a juvenile that was currently under suspension for verbally making a similar threat the prior week. This student was also involved in a suspension last school year involving a weapon on school property and a threat of violence at another school. The videos were disturbing and all threats are taken very seriously in this matter. The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office made contact with the suspect and his parent(s).
Sheriff Campbell said, “I have zero tolerance when it comes to threats against our students and faculty at our schools.”
The case is still under further investigation.
