A confrontation in the parking lot of Monaview Elementary School in Greenville County has led to one arrest.

The alleged confrontation occurred last Tuesday. That’s when the unnamed victim said a man with whom she was familiar approached her in the school’s parking lot and pointed a gun at her.

The man allegedly wielding the gun, 63-year-old Harold Thomas McClain, then followed behind the woman as she attempted to drive away.

McClain is now charged with Pointing and Presenting, Possession of a Firearm on School Grounds, Disturbing Schools and Unlawful Communication.

He is currently hospitalized due to unrelated health issues in the custody of the Greenville County Detention Center.

The confrontation has been deemed an isolated incident with no threat made to the school itself.
