Greenwood High School

Officials dropped heightened security at two Greenwood schools Monday morning after law enforcement investigated reports of what sounded like gunshots nearby, according to Greenwood County School District 50.

Pinecrest Elementary School and Greenwood High were put on a hold Monday morning after someone reported hearing gunshots near the campuses. Law enforcement investigated the report, and by about 9 a.m. had completed their investigation, finding nothing out of the ordinary.

District and school officials lifted the holds at both schools, and the campuses returned to normal operations.
