Caller Makes Threats Against Bertie County Nursing Home

Police spent the overnight Sunday watching over a nursing home in Windsor after someone calls the assisted living center making threats.

A spokesperson for the Windsor Police Department says someone called the Brian Center Health and Retirement Home saying they were going to "shoot the people inside."

Police say they were called by the nursing home as a precaution and will stay there for the night.

Officials at the center Monday morning said there were no incidents overnight.

The caller who made the threats police say was not in the state of North Carolina.

Sgt. Ricky Morris says there has been an ongoing family dispute with a former resident and it's not clear why the threats were made.
