GASTON COUNTY, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Two Gaston County high schools will see a greater police presence on Thursday after shooting threats were posted to Facebook Wednesday evening.
The threats were discovered by a concerned parent who began to question what was being done to protect students. The shooting threat targeted Hunter Huss High School and Stuart W. Cramer High School.
Gaston County Police says that they are aware of the threat. Cramerton Police have also been notified of this threat as well and "will be moving forward with safety precautions."
A message was sent out to parents of Cramer High School students from principal Audrey Devine that read, in part:
