CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Medical University of South Carolina officials say loud noises and a heavy police presence outside one of their West Ashley facilities should not be a cause for concern this past Saturday morning.
MUSC and Charleston Police are teaming up to conduct an active shooter drill at MUSC Specialty Care on Charlie Hall Boulevard.
The drill took place between 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, according to spokesman Tony Ciuffo.
The hospital said no one would provide any comments on the exercise.
Ciuffo said the drill was “very loud and active" and wanted to alert the community that it will only be a drill.
