A 31-year-old man has been charged in connection with threats called into Wayne County Community College on Friday.
According to ABC11 News, Goldsboro police arrested and charged 31-year-old Kentrell Chadwick with one count of making a false report concerning mass violence on educational property, which is a felony.
The community college, which was rocked earlier in the week by the on-campus killing of an employee, shut down early Friday and will remain closed for the weekend because of the threat made against the campus, a spokeswoman said.
“It was an unsubstantiated threat not related to Monday’s incident,” college spokeswoman Tara Humphries said.

The college closed at 10 a.m. Humphries said the school normally closes at 1 p.m. on Fridays.
The college has only “sporadic” classes on weekends, but the campus is normally used by the community, Humphries said.
The ACT college-admission test for high school students was to have been given on campus this weekend and will have to be rescheduled, Humphries said.
Monday, print shop worker Ronald Lane was killed in a campus building by a shotgun blast. Kenneth Morgan Stancil III was arrested Tuesday in Daytona Beach, Fla., and charged with murder after police found him sleeping on a beach.
Stancil admitted in a Florida courtroom that he had killed Lane, claiming the gay victim had approached Stancil’s younger brother.
In his first court appearance in Goldsboro on Thursday, Stancil used a vulgarity when telling a judge he knew he could get life in prison or the death penalty and then repeated it and was forcibly removed from the courtroom.
