HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – An incident report provides some new details about a weapon that was reported on a Carolina Forest High School bus.

Horry County police officers were called on Friday afternoon for a sighting of a weapon and responded to a gas station on the corner of Highway 90  and Old Altman Road.

An incident report states that someone at Carolina Forest High School had received a phone call from their administration office stating that they “saw a subject wearing a black hoodie with a firearm on the school bus.”

The students on board the bus were told to leave all of their belonging inside the bus and evacuate, according to the report.
