A student Rosa International Middle School in Cherry Hill has been taken into custody in connection with a "note of a threatening nature" found scrawled on the wall of a bathroom stall on Wednesday, officials said.
In a letter to parents, principal Edward Canzanese said that the message included names of specific individuals, but he did not elaborate.
"No one was ever in danger" during the police investigation of the message, which was brought to the school's attention by students, Canzanese said in the letter. A secretary at the school district said officials there would not offer further comment.
Cherry Hill police apprehended a child, according to Dan Keashen, spokesman for Mayor Bernie Platt.
