RCSD reports no active shooter at BHS

BLYTHEWOOD – After being notified that gunshots were reported at Blythewood High School Wednesday morning, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department secured the campus as investigators searched the school building and grounds.

The Sheriff’s Department has since tweeted that there is no active shooter at the school.

A press release from Richland Two sent at 11:20 a.m. says:

This morning law enforcement responded to a call from an unknown caller that shots had been fired on the Blythewood High School campus. The Richland County Sheriff’s Department responded immediately. The school was placed on lockdown while law enforcement searched the building. RCSD has determined the call was one of three hoax calls made to South Carolina schools this morning. There is no evidence of any gunfire or injuries at the school.
