Threat to Summerville H.S. originated in another state

The Berkeley County School District is reassuring parents and students about a threat circulating social media Wednesday night.

District leaders say a post made by someone named "Ray Andres" threatened to do harm at "SHS." The district says this post appears to have originated in another state and isn't directed at any Berkeley County schools.

BCSD is asking you to help them spread the word. It's asking anyone who sees the threatening post to let the individual sharing the post know it's not directed at any Berkeley County schools.

The district says it appreciates the cooperation and support of everyone who is helping to keep its schools safe.

You can read the entire statement from the Berkeley County School District by going to its Facebook page.

Summerville police are also reassuring the public. In a Facebook post, the department said it received multiple messages about the threatening post. It says officers determined the threat involved a high school in Ohio.

Summerville police also want to remind everyone if you see a threat on social media to alert your local police department instead of sharing the post on social media.
