MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

An elementary school in Mount Pleasant was on lockdown for almost 30 minutes Friday morning as police investigated a report of shots fired nearby.

Witnesses described to police a dark-colored Honda Accord with a spoiler said to be the gunman's vehicle.

No one appeared to have been injured, according to Mount Pleasant Police Inspector Chip Googe. Police were unable to locate a vehicle matching the description.

Belle Hall Elementary School went on a Code Yellow Lockdown from 10:35 a.m. until 11:03 a.m. because of police activity in the area, Charleston County School District spokesman Andy Pruitt said.

The lockdown happened as Mount Pleasant Police investigated a report of shots fired in the 1500 block of Snowden Road.

Charleston County dispatchers say the call came in at 10:24 a.m.

The incident is still under investigation, Googe said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 843-554-1111.
