Kellogg Middle School and Hamlin Park
All perimeter doors were secured after school Thursday afternoon in a lockout at Kellogg Middle School, Briarcrest Elementary, and Shorecrest High School, after a Kellogg student allegedly made threats towards a school or individual at a school.

There were reports this person was trying to obtain a weapon. This person was seen near Kellogg at the end of the school day. Police responded and the subject was seen running into a wooded area.

Police focused their search is in the area of Kellogg and Hamlin Park. KCSO resources, including the Guardian One helicopter, were involved along with Shoreline Police.

The person was not found in the vicinity. However police followed investigative leads and apprehended a suspect. Law enforcement informed the school district that there was no credible threat.

However, Thursday evening activities at Kellogg and Shorecrest, including the SC Performing Arts Center, were cancelled.

All schools will continue on a normal schedule Friday. Out of an abundance of caution, there will also be additional police presence at Kellogg on Friday.
