A 17-year-old student at a South Carolina high school was arrested and charged Wednesday for making an online threat about a mass shooting at two schools.
Days’Yannie Aremony Gamble was charged with disturbing schools for the threat about Lake City High School in Florence County.
The Florence County Sheriff’s Office said it learned of the threat posted on social media shortly after midnight Wednesday, and tracked the post to Gamble.
Investigators allege she made a threat that there would be a mass shooting at Lake City High School and also the Lake City Alternative School.
Gamble was taken to the Florence County Detention Center, where she was granted a $2,128 bond.
Earlier this week, the sheriff’s office reported it arrested another Lake City High School student, a juvenile, for bringing a firearm on to school property. The investigation revealed that the firearm was located in the student’s vehicle, but was never part of an active threat to the school.
“We are investigating all threats to our schools as soon as they come to our attention and if the facts warrant, we will make charges whether the threats turn out to be real or not,” Chief Glen Kirby said in a news release. “We will have a zero tolerance for all firearms brought on to school property. The safety and security of our children at school is our top priority.”
