A student at a Summerville middle school was suspended after a list of "People To Kill" was found in a hallway.
A teacher found the list Friday and turned it in to staff, according a report from the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office. The school's resource officer, a deputy, was asked to investigate.
The deputy discovered that most of the names on the list were eighth-graders, according to the report. He compared writing samples of eighth-graders with the writing on the paper and identified a possible suspect.
The principal brought the student into her office and asked him to tell her who had been bothering him. He mentioned the same names as those on the list, according to the report. The student said he made the list to relieve stress and didn't plan to hurt anybody. He said he meant to throw the list away.
The deputy notified the student's parents. They told him he didn't have access to any guns, according to the report.
The student was suspended until a disciplinary hearing, District 2 spokeswoman Pat Raynor said Wednesday.
All the parents of the 14 students on the list were also contacted, Raynor said.
