Lexington teen charged after school threat

An 18-year-old has been arrested and charged with making threats of a mass shooting at Pelion High School.

Robert Hunter Jacob Woods, a Pelion High student, admitted to deputies Tuesday night he created multiple social media profiles to make threats against the school, according to an arrest warrant.

“A concerned Pelion High student made us aware of the social media messages,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “After we spoke with the student, we worked with Lexington One security officials to conduct a thorough investigation and eventually identified Woods as the user behind the account posting the threats.”

Woods is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center while he awaits a bond hearing.
