Early this morning an anonymous caller made numerous threats related to a shooting on Wake Forest’s campus. University Police and Winston-Salem Police conducted a thorough sweep of threatened buildings without finding any evidence to support the claims of the caller. Police believe the calls were a hoax.
Police will continue to investigate the threat. Anyone with information is asked to contact University Police at 336-758-5911.
