SWANSEA, SC (WIS) - A report of a student posing a threat to one Lexington Four School District school has been clarified.

The Lexington County Sheriff's Department says they've identified the student who reportedly made a threat to the Swansea Freshman Academy on Tuesday.

"After a thorough interview, we determined the student did not possess any weapons," LCSD said in a tweet. "We continue to work with Lexington Four to maintain a safe environment for students, teachers, and staff."

This is one of many false threats made throughout Midlands schools. All of the threats have been investigated by school officials and law enforcement and have been unsubstantiated.
