Threatening graffiti found at NC high school

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) Authorities say the first names of 10 students with the words "are dead" written underneath were recently discovered on a wall at Fayetteville's Douglas Byrd High School.

Media outlets reported that Cumberland County schools spokeswoman Theresa Perry said the names were scrawled on a concrete pillar near a stairwell.

Deputies say investigators don't know who wrote the graffiti. But a 16-year-old student was charged with damage to property after she was seen on surveillance video posting graffiti on a different wall. Perry says the girl has been disciplined.

School system officials say suspension is the punishment for communicating a threat.
