We went in search of the answers.

Rumors swirled Sept. 13 about just what took place on the day before at Greenwood High School.

Warren County Schools Superintendent Dale Brown said a student did make terroristic threats before being taken off the premises.

Many classmates claim that the student had a "hit list" and a shotgun.

But Superintendent Brown said that's not the case.

"We do not have a "list," nor a gun. We have no proof that we had a gun at school," Brown said.

Brown said students were notified of the incident this morning when a statement was read over the public address system.

He noted that the school followed procedures to make sure that the student didn't harm himself or anyone else.

The superintendent said this is a situation school officials are always preparing for.

"We continue to review our policies and procedures with the different events taking place throughout the country. After the review, if needed, if the policy needs to be changed, we'll do everything that we can," Brown explained.

So he urged that parents have nothing to worry about when they're child heads off to classes.

Brown said the situation is currently under investigation by the Warren County Sheriff's Dept.

The student's motive is still unclear at this time.
