North Stanly Middle School students and parents arrived Wednesday morning to find increased security precautions at the school.
Stanly County Sheriff Jeff Crisco was contacted by a North Stanly Middle School parent and teacher about safety concerns Tuesday night surrounding a social media post.
Five sheriff deputies were at the middle school Wednesday morning as a precaution.
“In lieu of what took place in Charlotte yesterday, we just wanted to be extra cautious,” Crisco said of the shooting at UNC-Charlotte Tuesday evening. “Safety is our primary concern.”
Superintendent Dr. Jeff James confirmed Wednesday that the dispute was over a post seen on Facebook Tuesday night.
