NCHSAA is waiting for the official reports before ruling on the altercation between the Southern Pines Pinecrest and Cameron Union Pines football teams. Both teams could be ineligible for the playoffs.
A Facebook page has erupted into expletives and insults after a Knightdale High School student penned to free “Mariah Wisdom,” one of the suspects in the murder of another student.
Dominique Royster wrote the words on her Facebook page on March 23 and three days later, she was “jumped” in the lunch room at Knightdale High School by several students, according to her father, Roger Royster.
Mariah Wisdom, 17, her brother Rapper Rajal Amed “Real Dynamite” Wisdom, Jr., 22, and their father Rajal Amed Wisdom Sr., 45, have been charged with the first degree murder of
Nigel Ellison, 18, a popular Knightdale High School student. Ellison was fatally shot on March 21 in Raleigh.
They also were charged with the attempted murder of Kalife I. Johnson.
Dominique Royster said she was friends with Rajal Amed Wisdom Jr. and Mariah Wisdom. She said a member of the school staff who deals with disciplinary problems was assigned to shadow her as she went through the day on Friday, her first day back at school since the murder.
Her father said she had received death threats on her cell phone and that he kept her out of school until emotions cooled. He said he talked to school administrators about the situation and that they assured him that they would take appropriate action.
Royster said she didn’t know where the member of the staff was when she was attacked.
A school staff member called her mother Friday and told her that her daughter had been suspended for three days because of the fight, Royster said.
When asked about writing “free Mariah” on the Facebook page, she ended a cell phone call.
