MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach High School was evacuated Monday morning after a threat was discovered on a bathroom wall.
We received word of the evacuation from a parent of a Myrtle Beach High School student shortly after 9:30 a.m. That parent said the students were evacuated to the middle school.
Myrtle Beach Police spokesman Capt. David Knipes says crews were dispatched to the school for a 'suspicious call.' Officials with Horry County Schools say a bomb threat written on a bathroom wall was discovered Monday morning, prompting the evacuation.
After bomb-sniffing dogs cleared the building, students were allowed back in to resume a normal schedule.
There was also a bomb threat made at North Myrtle Beach High School today.
Sgt. Robert Kegler said police have taken a 16-year-old student into custody and no device was found at the school. The suspect's name will not be released due to his age.
