Rumors of a shooting at Brookland-Cayce High School today are unfounded, according to Lexington 2 school district officials.
Classes are continuing as usual at the Lexington 2 high school in Cayce.
The rumors stem from a Friday incident where Brookland-Cayce students and a former student got into a shouting match near the State Street school. The former student allegedly made a threat.
"Because of recent incidents at Virginia Tech we are concerned and are taking measures to protect our students and staff," said Lexington 2 assistant superintendent Venus Holland. "We are erring on the side of safety and have contacted local law enforcement."
