RCSD still investigating BHS threats

BLYTHEWOOD – Several students have been suspended but no criminal charges have been filed after threatening comments were reported at Blythewood High School last week.

A student’s email to administrators reported “overhearing threatening comments by several students.”

While Richland County sheriff’s deputies have determined that there is “no credible threat to the school building, students, or faculty,” extra police were on campus Friday, and deputies continue to investigate the comments that were made. The students in question have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

No criminal charges are pending at this time, deputies say.
