Three Berkeley schools locked down after shots fired nearby

Three Berkeley County schools off Red Bank Road were locked down Tuesday after gunshots were reported from across Howe Hall Road.

Goose Creek High School and Sedgefield Middle and Intermediate schools were on lockdown for less than a half-hour, said Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Dan Moon said.

The gunshots were reported from Rutt Lane. Deputies found some empty shell casings near Old Back River Road but no suspects, Moon said.
