White Knoll High student charged after shooting threat

August 13, 2019

Red Bank, SC - A rising junior at White Knoll High school has been charged after he made an online threat to shoot up his school and kill himself.

 

Lexington County investigators interviewed the male suspect, whose name will not be released because he’s under the age of 17, Monday afternoon at his home.

 

He’s charged with making threats to a school. He’s been released to the custody of his parents pending a mental health evaluation.

 

“White Knoll administrators notified us about the threat after a student shared a screen shot and related details of what the suspect posted online,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “We always take these threats seriously. This is an example of how a strong relationship between school district administration and law enforcement creates a level of safety and protection in our community.”

 

Koon said the investigation into the threat is ongoing. The teen will appear in Lexington County Family Court at a later date.
