GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office says a middle school student is facing charges in connection with making threats.
The 12-year-old, whose name was not released because of his age, is a student at Waccamaw Middle School, sheriff’s office spokesman Jason Lesley said. He is charged with student threats.
“The child was detained at school until his parents arrived,” Lesley said.
