ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. -- Police need help identifying a person who is accused of making a threat to shoot people at a Rowan County school.  

Authorities say the suspect called Morgan Elementary School on Wednesday and said he would shoot people inside the school.  

The school immediately went into lock-down and police were notified.  Several other schools in the area were also placed on lock-down.  

Police determined there was no active threat at the schools.  Investigators say the call came from a pay phone at a business on Jake Alexander Boulevard and Mooresville Road.  

Security footage shows a small white SUV parked near the phone at the time the call was placed.  Anyone with information about the vehicle is asked to call 911.
