LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. — Deputies have arrested an armed man and placed a woman he was with on notice for trespassing after finding them both on school property, Friday.
The Richland County Sheriff's Department reports that a school resource officer at Dutch Fork High School encountered the two in the school parking lot after an administrator reported that neither was a student.
The resource officer ultimately discovered that the man, identified as 20-year-old Tyshawn Isaiah Lightbourne, was not only in possession of a gun, but he also had another in his personal effects.
The Irmo resident was charged with unlawful carry, possession of a stolen weapon, and carrying a weapon on school grounds and has since been booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center. The woman he was with was released but given a trespass notice.
Despite the fact that the man was armed, investigators believe it was an isolated incident and added that no threats were made to students or staff.
