High School Placed On Lockdown After Person Wearing Mask Spotted

An Eastern Carolina high school was placed on lockdown today after an employee spotted someone in dark clothing and wearing a white mask enter the school and walk into a classroom.

It turned out to be a student that had medical bandages on her face because of a recent traffic accident.

It happened Tuesday afternoon around 1:30 p.m. at Rocky Mount High School. Police were notified and the entire school was placed on lockdown as the school was searched.

Police say it was all a misunderstanding and there was no threat to students or employees at the school at any time. Officers were at the high school for about an hour.
