From Beth Brotherton of the Greenville Co. School District:

I can confirm that a 15-year-old Woodmont High School Freshman was arrested this afternoon by the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.  The student is accused of making specific threats against particular students and staff members and vague threats against the school.  Those threats were reported to administrators who worked with the school resource officer and other law enforcement personnel.  The student who made the threats has been suspended, recommended for expulsion, and charged by law enforcement.  As with all expulsions, state law prohibits the student from entering a Greenville County Schools campus for the rest of the school year.  Further information will be provided by the Sheriff’s Office.

From Ryan Flood of the Greenville Co. Sheriff's Office:

School Resource Officers with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 15 year-old student from Woodmont High School.   At approximately 11:30 this morning,  Resource Officers received information from the school administration that a student had made threats against specific students and staff members as well as more general threats against the school.  Officers initiated an investigation and were able to arrest the student at the school.  The student has been charged with Disturbing Schools and Threatening the Use of a Destructive or Incendiary Device and was transported to the Greenville County Juvenile Detention Center.  Resource Officers did not locate any weapon or incendiary devices on the student or at the school.
