GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A Greenville County student has been charged Friday morning after posting a threatening message on social media.

According to Greenville County Schools, Eastside High School administration was made aware of the threat just after 8:00 a.m. and immediately notified law enforcement who started an investigation.

The school resource officer located the 15-year-old student and made the arrest.

Once the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office arrived, deputies searched the student and found no weapons.

The school district said there was no evidence that the student had any means to carry out the threat.

Deputies charged the student with student threats.

According to the school district, additional law enforcement and district personnel on the school campus today.

“I got a text, so it must have been about 8:40 a.m., my daughter said ‘Mom, it’s a little bit scary,” said parent Ariel Turner.

Turner said she wanted to be cautious and decided to pick her daughter up, in light of what happened last week at Tanglewood Middle School, where a student was shot and killed.

“I think a lot of us are very on edge, so even at the slightest hint of a dangerous situation, we’re going to go get our kids out of school, no question,” said Turner.

Nakia Smith said her son also went home early Friday.

“My son, he’s okay for the moment, I think it kind of shook him up,” said Smith.

She wishes there was better communication from the school about the threat.

“I tried calling the school, three times and was appointed to the voicemail,” said Smith.

Turner also said many parents only knew what was happening because of social media or by talking to their kids.

“I certainly understand the considerations that go into putting out some sort of statement but considering the environment we’re in and what happened last week, it was incredibly frustrating to be getting information from students who are there at school,” said Turner.

The school district said it works to get information about situations like this to parents as quickly and accurately as possible.
