Law enforcement in Guilford County, North Carolina say they've made two arrests involving a threat to “shoot up” Northeast High School.
According to the Guilford County Sheriff's Office, Deputies were made aware of several online threats posted that said there would be a shooting at the Friday Night Football game.
On the social media post, which was intended to discuss the <i>Game of the Week</i> which advertised Northeast High School, three separate comments were left saying that there would be a shooting at the football game.
The School Resource Officer was notified and the school has been in lockdown ever since first becoming aware of the posts.
Deputies then put in place an emergency order to gain information about the IP addresses used to post the threats.
They were then able to track the IP addresses to a specific series or computers at Northeast High School, and began checking the access logs of those devices.
Most high schools in American classrooms require students to sign in before using the devices, and that was also the case at Northeast, leading investigators to their suspects.
17 year old Noah Chase Kendrick, and 17 Tyree Jamar Ellis were both the questioned by police and then arrested for making false threat of mass violence against educational property.
The pair of students are now being detained on respective $10,000 bonds in the juvenile detention center.
