SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A hunter on private property caused two Dorchester District 2 schools to go on lockdown Friday, authorities say.
Summerville Police said the man, whose identity was not released, was hunting with a pellet gun on private property and did not present a threat to the schools.
Dorchester District 2 spokesperson Pat Raynor earlier said a "suspicious person" in the area of Orangeburg Road prompted a lockdown at Gregg Middle and Summerville High School at approximately 12:30 p.m.
The person was not on the campus of either school, she said.
Both schools went off lockdown at 1:05 p.m., Raynor said.
