North Lincoln Middle School

LINCOLN COUNTY, N.C. — A middle school student has been suspended and may face charges after deputies say she wrote letters threatening her entire school.

The letters were found at North Lincoln Middle School, according to WSOC.

Some students say one of the letters threatened the life of an eighth-grade teacher.

Police searched the school twice this week and found three threatening letters.

Lincoln County sheriff investigators were first called to the school Tuesday after they say a threatening letter was found underneath a student’s desk.

Students said that letter targeted only one teacher.

“It was a typed letter that someone was going to kill her and called her some ugly names,” an eighth-grader said.

Then on Wednesday, deputies were called back to the school after two more threatening letters were found under a beanbag in a classroom.

The student suspected of writing the letters has not been identified, but investigators did confirm she is female.

She has been suspended from school and parents were quickly notified about the threats.
