Durham, N.C. — The Durham County Sheriffs Office and administrators at Riverside High School have launched an investigation into reports of sexual activity on school grounds, behavior that was apparently shared during an Instagram Live post, authorities said Wednesday.

A spokesman for Durham Public Schools confirmed to WRAL News that Riverside High Principal Tonya Williams has launched a review of what happened between a male and a female student sometime this month.

Sudderth said Wednesday evening that the classroom where the alleged incident occurred β€” a computer lab that was temporarily unlocked and unoccupied β€” has since been secured. Its not clear yet when Assistant Principal Britton Brown, the administrator to whom Mills spoke, learned about the classroom, he said, or if there was more than one incident there.

Law enforcement officers were at the school at the start of this week as part of a criminal investigation into the incident.

According to a search warrant obtained Monday by a Durham sheriffs deputy, a male Riverside student and a female student had a verbal argument three days earlier after the boy began telling other classmates about a sex act performed on him by the girl, an incident that was captured and shared on Instagram.

Principal Williams has taken steps to help prevent such incidents from happening in the future, the statement continued. Due to student privacy laws we cannot share any more information on the subject, but we are investigating, and the safety and privacy of our students is our highest concern.

At least one school administrator told the deputy that he had been told about a classroom on campus where students were engaged in sexual activity, according to the search warrant.
