Civil War Re-enactment Munition Sparks School Evacuation

Onslow County, North Carolina

The evacuation of the Onslow County Learning Center was issued after district officials notified authorities that a suspicious item had been found by OCS grounds crew who were clearing vegetation around the school. EOD from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune responded to the scene.

Camp Lejeune EOD informed law enforcement and the school district that the ordnance was likely a Civil War re-enactment cannonball and contained no explosives, according to a statement from OCS.

"All OCS students and staff remained safe during the evacuation and removal processes," the statement read. "Safety is Onslow County Schools' top priority, and we appreciate the support and collaboration of our local emergency responders, as well as our families, as we work to keep our schools safe and secure."
