The threat to public safety at “BHS” circulating on social media Monday was determined to be Brunswick High School and not Bradwell Institute.
A 16-year-old Brunswick High School student was arrested and charged with terroristic threats and disruption of a public school after multiple students received an anonymous message that a school shooting would happen.
The screenshot shared on social media used the acronym “BHS”, which local some parents believed to be Bradwell Institute.
“When we followed up on it, we found it to be Brunswick High School,” said Assistant Chief of the Hinesville Police Department Lloyd Slater. “We did take the extra precautions and had extra patrol at BI today.”
“We prefer that if a parent is monitoring their child’s social interactions and see a threat, to contact local law enforcement first,” Slater said.
