Wilson’s Hunt High on lockdown following ‘anonymous threat’

WILSON, N.C. (WNCN) – Hunt High School in Wilson is on lockdown Wednesday morning after the school’s office received an anonymous threat, the district’s superintendent said.

Wilson County Schools spokeswoman Amber Lynch said this is Hunt’s fourth threat this year.

Lynch sent the following note out to parents at 9:30 a.m.:

Good morning. This is Amber Lynch with a message for Hunt parents. Hunt is on lockdown at this time after the office received an anonymous threat. Students are being kept inside. As always, exterior doors are locked. No visitors are being allowed inside the building until the lockdown is over. We are asking parents not to come to the school because you will not be allowed inside. We are working with law enforcement, and I will be back in touch as soon as I know more.

Lynch said the other threats came at the end of September, October and beginning of November.

No other information was immediately available.
