This morning there was a shooting on Peanut Plant Road in Elizabethtown. Elly Johnson with Bladen County Schools stated in an email, “The safety of our students and staff is always a top priority. At the recommendation of law enforcement, we placed all of our schools and facilities on lockdown. Approximately 30 minutes later, Sheriff McVicker advised we could lift the lockdown with the exception of Elizabethtown Middle School, Elizabethtown Primary School and the District Office.”

Johnson added, “At approximately 11:15, Bladen County Schools learned that two suspects had been apprehended and could give the all-clear to Elizabethtown Middle School, Elizabethtown Primary School, and the District Office.”
