COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - All schools in the Richland School District Two are under enhanced security Monday. District officials said the Richland County Sheriff’s Department is searching for two individuals and are taking precautionary measures.

All students have been brought inside and visitors are not being allowed inside school buildings. Officials said classes are continuing as normal. This is part of the ‘Standard Response Protocol’ which administrators say is used by districts nationwide.

Officials said there is no immediate danger or threat to the schools. RCSD said they are searching for a suspect involved in a high-speed pursuit.

R2 issued an update on the district at around 1:20 p.m. All students and staff are reported safe in schools, the district said it is awaiting additional details from law enforcement.

“We apologize for any inconvenience and plans that may be disrupted as a result of this safety action,” said R2 administrators.

This is a developing story and will be updated as we learn more.
