RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Extra law enforcement will be on hand at a Wake County middle school on Wednesday, officials say.

The extra police and deputies will be at Ligon Middle School because of “rumors at the school,” said Lisa Luten, a spokeswoman for Wake County Schools.

Luten would not elaborate on the rumors.  She did say that it was not a specific threat, but instead all kinds of “rumors.”

The principal of the school, Gretta Dula, was calling parents Tuesday night with a recorded message about the extra security measures at the Raleigh school, Luten said.

Both Raleigh Police and Wake County Deputies will be on the scene, Luten said.
