According to the Lexington County Sheriff's Department, two males have been charged in separate, unrelated incidents with making threats to students, at their respective schools.

One of the males attended Carolina Springs Middle School in Lexington. The 13-year-old made a statement Monday to another student he was going to "shoot up the school, then shoot himself," according to an incident report. 

The second male, 12-years-old, attends Pine Ridge Middle School. He threatened to bring a gun to school and use it against another student in a social media post Monday night, according to the incident report. 

Both males were released to the custody of their parents after being charged. They will appear in a Lexington County Family Court at a later date.
