DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Two Darlington County schools were locked down Monday afternoon as law enforcement searched the Lamar area for a suspect.
According to a post on the Darlington County School District's Facebook page, Spaulding Elementary School and Spaulding Middle School were both locked down as a precaution.
District officials indicated everyone was safe.
The lockdown, which has since been lifted, delayed student dismissal by a few students. Those who ride the bus in Lamar will be delayed slightly as a result.
