The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office says dozens of deputies and bomb dogs worked to clear Carolina High School after a bomb threat was called in to the school’s office.

Carolina High School was on full lockdown for hours and dismissal was delayed until deputies deemed it safe for students and teachers to leave their classrooms.

Lt. Ryan Flood said the call came in around noon and the caller said to have placed bombs around the school and also threatened to come by fifteen minutes later and carry out a school shooting.

School resource officers were already at the school and deputies blocked all road entrances within minutes but after searching deputies did not find any evidence of an actual threat after bomb teams cleared the building.

There was no active shooter and all students were unharmed. The investigation continues into who the caller was said to have had a British accident.
