CCSD: 2 Lockdown lifted at North Charleston schools

Posted: Updated:

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Officials with the Charleston County School District said Friday that two North Charleston schools were briefly placed on lockdown after an armed home invasion.

The lockdown was lifted around noon and lasted about 30 minutes, officials said. Officials added that the step is precautionary.

According to the statement released on the district's Facebook page, North Charleston High and Elementary schools were put on yellow administrative lockdown while police investigate in the area.

North Charleston police said officers were sent to a Jenkins Avenue home around 11 a.m. in reference to a robbery. The victim told police that she was at home babysitting at the time when someone knocked at the back door. She saw two black men dressed in all black and said they asked for a person who was not at the home, police said.

That's when one of the men pulled out a gun and demanded to be let inside the home, according to police. The babysitter let them in, she told police, and the men ransacked two rooms and left the home.

No one was injured in the incident, police said.

Police are still investigating the incident.
