Sources told ABC11 that a call came in about shots fired. Police rushed to the school and put it on lockdown at approximately 1:40 p.m. Police searched the campus. They have not said whether anything was found. School officials said it appeared to be a hoax call that came from outside the school.
Lisa Luten, spokeswoman for Wake County Public School System, said there was no evidence any shots were fired, no one was injured and no one was in danger.
“The children are safe," Luten said at about 3 p.m. "They are working on figuring out logistics for an orderly dismissal."
Regular dismissal is scheduled for 2:18 p.m. Cars didn't start rolling out of the Rolesville parking lot until about an hour later on Thursday.
An apparent threat at Rolesville High School is keeping kids beyond dismissal time. The school is reporting that everyone is safe. No further information is available at this time, but we will monitor the situation.
