MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A 21-year-old man who was arrested for allegedly threatening on social media to shoot up a school has been charged and released on bond, officials confirmed.

Robert Shand was arrested Tuesday morning after the Marion County Sheriff's Office received an anonymous tip that Shand stated that “it is a good day to go shoot up a school,” on a social media site.

Shand was arrested and charged with threatening the life of a public official, unlawful communication, aggravated breach of peace, disturbing schools and simple possession of marijuana.

Shand is out of jail on a $40,000 surety bond. Shand was placed on GPS tracking, and as a condition of his release, is not allowed within one mile of a Marion County school. Shand must also make an appointment with a mental health professional, and no weapons are permitted in his residence.

Officers went to the Marion County schools and the schools were placed on lock down following the social media post.
