Update 11:25 a.m. Dec. 20: Police say the contraband was two bullets on a bus and no other ammunition was discovered. (statement added to original story)
Administrators at Summerville High's official Facebook page have posted a message to allay fears as students tweeted about a lockdown due to a gun on campus — some saying students have left the school after the incident.
The Facebook page reported that "contraband" was found on a school bus, and a thorough investigation revealed everything was secure. Summerville Police have identified the contraband as bullets, releasing this statement:
Today 12/20/2012, the Summerville Police Department was notified a bus driver had found two bullets on a bus. In an abundance of caution, Summerville High School officials removed the students from classes and they conducted a safety check of the students and their lockers. No further ammunition or weapons were located.
A statement from the district will be available soon.
Parents, we extended first period this morning due to contraband found on one of our buses. Summerville Police, district security, and the SHS admin team conducted a thorough investigation and found nothing to be alarmed about. We have now returned to our normal exam schedule. We hope you have a great holiday break!
