Lowell Police: Student Makes Snapchat Gun Threat

He said it was a written threat and no students or staff were injured or harmed. We expect this situation to cause a minimal disruption today and have put supports in place for all members of the school community.

The Pickens County School District said there was never any threat made against Getty's Middle and Easley High schools for Friday the 13th despite a social media uproar.

That speculation turned into rumor that exploded Thursday night and got the attention of law enforcement, according to Eby.

Brunswick school officials say parents notified police and the school district when they saw the threat on Snapchat.

Cavaliers shut down LeBron James for remainder of preseason
On Wednesday, the soreness in his ankle returned, and the Cavs made the decision to shut James down the rest of the preseason. Irving demanded to be traded during the summer and he and James have taken some shots at each other in the past two months.

Absences will be excused with a parents note, Eby said.

After the post was seen by police early Friday morning, they contacted the staff at Lowell Public Schools. No threat has been made against the school in recent days. "As a result of this investigation, both school and legal disciplinary action has been taken".

The police department and the school department did not immediately provide additional information about the threat and its contents. Unfortunately, we live in a time when the threat of violence is something we must always be prepared for, which is why we have a full-time police presence at Easley High School.
