    (9:55am) Shooting and stabbing at Carolina Forest High School : News : WPDE

    (Updated 9:55 am) Horry County school officials have confirmed that both a stabbing and a shooting occurred at Carolina Forest High School this morning, leading to the school being locked down.

    We're told an 11th grade male student asked to see the school resource officer this morning, and that a confrontation occurred. Horry County school officials say the student stabbed the school resource officer and that the school resource officer returned with a gunshot.

    Horry County police have a mobile command unit at the school, but say the situation is under control and no one is in danger. The conditions of the school resource officer and the student have not been released.

    Resource officer stabbed, student shot | SCNow

    Carolina Forest High School was placed on lockdown Friday morning after an incident involving a school resource officer being stabbed by a student and the student being shot.

    According to Teal Britton with Horry County Schools, the incident happened inside the school shortly after school let in. Britton said an 11th-grade-student assaulted the school resource officer with a knife and the officer then fired his gun and shot the student.

    Britton says at around 8:25 a.m., the student asked to speak with the resource officer and went into his office. No students witnessed this attack because the door was closed.

    Both were taken by ambulance to Conway Hospital for treatment. There’s no word on their conditions.

    Britton says there is no information at this time whether the student had recently been involved in disciplinary action at the school.

    She says the students are aware that something happened at the school this morning and praised the students for “behaving beautifully” for following the school’s emergency action plan.

    Britton said the situation is under control and the campus of Carolina Forest High School is secure. The lockdown is still in effect, though, and no one is being let in or out of the school.

    Britton referred to the situation as “bizarre and unexpected,“ but says the school hopes to lift the lockdown by 11:00 a.m. and resume with a normal school day.

    She says it is up to the students and their parents if they decide to stay at school or be dismissed early.

    News13 has confirmed two ambulances did leave the school shortly after 9 a.m.

    Count on more information on this developing story as it becomes available.

    Weird but at least the driveby media cannot use this as an example against ordinary citizens with CCW...

    Hope the officer recovers fully and quickly!

    Good thing he didn't ask to see an unarmed teacher or administrator.

    This is wild and sad... so the resource officer had a weapon? I've never heard of a resource officer at a school so I'm clueless on this one. I need more on this story.

    In larger metro areas it's become a necessary evil. Where I grew up they were actual patrol officers assigned as part of the school resource officer program. They would be available should any incidents occur at the school and they also regularly patrolled the immediately surrounding community.

    Same for where I grew up, we had uniformed LEO monitoring the metal detectors at the entrance and plain clothes detachment from Dallas PD that was always on site in the "youth action" group.

    Thanks packinnova for the explanation i figured it was a school security officer but never heard of it as a resource officer. We don't have anything even close to that in our school. I don't know why school boards can't get it through their thick skulls to have a armed guard or a teacher with the proper training/background that can carry at a school. This is a prime example on how maybe 1 or more lives was just saved thanks to a GUN on SCHOOL GROUNDS!

    I live in a rural area and we now have assigned resource officers as well.

    They are typically armed though not wearing the same amount of gear and even more relaxed civilian like uniform apparel than that of a beat/cruiser police.

    Sadly as I'm told by local police administration and school administrators, it is full school year beneficial and necessary these days to have their presence and involvement with students.
    One such officer I talked with directly and extensively stated that students have all manner of issues on going at home and on the streets to which they come to him to act as an intermediary at times or even as a pseudo-guidance counselor. He went on to say he often sees the children of the children he graduated a decade prior come back through to his school and to him with exact same problems as their parents.

    It's a sad reality.

    Ridiculous. Our schools have turned into mini-prisons and killing fields instead of places of learning. Well, let me back up - they have learned one lesson today:

    Don't bring a knife to a gunfight......

    My Grandfather used to tell me that I would know when the end of our country was at hand; He said that when we began building more prisons than we were building schools, the end was probably 20 years away. When People began to embrace the ways and politics of our enemies, he said the end would be a few years away. I see both happening now right before my eyes....... Tough times are ahead, people.

    EDR,

    That ratio tipping point began IIRC in the early to mid '90s, so by your grandpa's math we have a half decade or less left. :|

    Read some of the comments. Incredible that some are blaming the SRO for killing the student.

    it's definitely a different world we live in now. it's sad that families get into a cycle and have the same issues as their parents, instead of growing out of them or realizing the issues they just take the easy way out and blame their childhood or parents and use that as a crutch. I know people have their own issues but it's sad these kids don't have the support/structure that they need at home and then it leads some something like this.

    This officer did what he had to do. It's sad but this kid should have known the consequences he's a junior in high school.

    Same here in rural VA -- albeit they are full time Deputies, depending on the county, most HS, MS, JH have full time Deputies, where as the lower grades have part-time (e.g., split between schools but working full-time).

    Deputies w/ families consider it a prime assignment -- fixed M-F day shift w/ OT for sports events.
