Clover High School were confined students to classrooms for more than an hour Tuesday after “threats were communicated via social media” by an adult, a school spokesman said.
Bryan Dillon, a spokesman with the Clover school district, said the threats were made in a video posted on social media by an adult who was not a parent or guardian.
He said the school was on “shelter in place” for about 75 minutes Tuesday morning, ending around 11:30 a.m. During “shelter in place,” he said, students remained in their classrooms and instruction continued with no movement between buildings.
Travis Montgomery Brown, 21, of Clover was arrested for making the threats to students, said Trent Faris, public information officer for the York County Sheriff’s Office.
Dillon could not provide details about the nature of the threats made.
