Greenville Elementary School Goes Into Lock Down

A threat of weapons on campus led to a lock down at a Greenville elementary school Tuesday. Wednesday, authorities made an arrest.

Greenville police say a 14-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy walked onto the campus of Eastern Elementary just after 1 p.m., showed what appeared to be guns, and threatened a teacher.

The school's principal says the school immediately went into lock down, securing all classrooms and students. Police say they're investigating whether the weapons may have been toy guns.

The juveniles are facing multiple charges, some of which are felonies. They are being held at the juvenile detention center without bond.
