by Kirk Hawkins

CORNELIUS, NC--Hundreds of parent, students, faculty and staff packed the Hough High School
gymnasium on Wednesdaday night after five bomb scares on campus. Police charged 16 year old Riley Bowlin, 18 year old Branco Villafranca and an unnamed minor with felonies after those threats turned out to be hoaxes. Parents say the school and the district did a terrible job of keeping them

"How they respond to a hoax will show me how they are going to  respond to it when it actualy happens. To me it was an epic failure," said Cornelius Resident Jennifer Soules.

School officials say they plan to work on a new emergency plan with police in the district and police in Cornelius.
