CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston police say any social media posts made Saturday about an active shooter on King Street are false.

“Things on King Street are fine,” Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said. “No active shooter. Nothing to this.”

Francis did not describe the nature of the posts that were made about any possible active shooter.

“This started this evening with a call to dispatch about a white male carrying a rifle on King Street,” Francis said. “Officers canvassed the entire area and didn’t see or hear anything.”
