Lowell Police: Student Makes Snapchat Gun Threat

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.

Qualcomm asks court to block sale, manufacturing of iPhones in China
Although China isn't Apple's most profitable country for iPhone sales, it is where the majority of the devices are manufactured. Rather, this mostly seems to be an attempt to get back at Apple for many lawsuit it's filed against Qualcomm around the globe.

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.
