Eastern Wayne High School was in lock down after Wayne County Schools apparently received a threat.

Wayne County sheriff's deputies and Seymour Johnson AFB were on scene with canines policing the area. All areas appear to be under search, including buildings, buses and vehicles.

After noon, students at Eastern Wayne returned to class after an all clear from law enforcement.

Three other schools also were affected by the threat: Goldsboro High School, Wayne School of Engineering and Greenwood Middle. K-9 officers and their handlers moved over to the additional three schools after leaving Eastern Wayne.

At Goldsboro High School, a reporter was escorted off campus by Goldsboro police Cpl. Fleming. Students were not allowed to be released from GHS en masse but parents were off campus collecting their children as they were allowed to leave.

The school has been evacuated and students are thought to be on athletic fields.

How the type of threat was communicated and the time of the threat has not yet been confirmed. Wayne County Sheriff's Maj. Richard Lewis said this morning at Eastern Wayne High School that it was a bomb threat.
