LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. — A Swansea High school student has been suspended after making threatening comments to other students on a school bus.
A release from Lexignton School District Four was sent out and said that this week a student from Swansea high school made threatening comments to other students while on a school bus.
Steven Isaac Smith, 18, made verbal threats to take the lives of others and inflict bodily harm upon another person, according to an arrest warrant.
Another student reported the incident to his parents who contacted Lexington County Sheriff deputies.
While riding the bus to school Tuesday, Smith threatened to “shoot this bus up,” according to the warrant.
Smith was arrested at Swansea High Thursday. He’s being held in the Lexington County Detention Center while he awaits a bond hearing.
District administration assisted deputies in investigating and confirming the threat.
The student was immediately suspended from school pending a district hearing, and the incident was turned over to the school resource officer as part of the district’s continued cooperation with law enforcement.
