CAMERON, N.C. (WNCN) — Moore County school officials said that there will be more officers at a school on Wednesday after a social media post on Tuesday.

The social media post was made Tuesday afternoon and Moore County Schools Police have been investigating the posts, Catherine Murphy of Moore County Schools said in a statement.


The social media post was regarding Union Pines High School, Murphy confirmed.

The post on Snapchat included a shooting threat, however, Murphy said: “We have no information that would indicate it is a credible threat.”

The Union Pines principal on Tuesday “sent out a phone message informing students, staff and parents of the unsubstantiated threat and the increased law enforcement presence” for Wednesday, officials said.
