On Thursday, the State Bureau of Investigation investigated more than a dozen threats on school campuses across North Carolina, including several in eastern North Carolina, and say those threats turned out to be a hoax.

New Bern high school was one of the targets, and officials with the New Bern Police Department said the anonymous caller claimed there was an active shooting incident on campus.

After a search of the school, investigators determined the call was fake.

Schools in at least 19 counties received similar threats, including Beaufort, Onslow, and Craven County.
