Timothy Isaiah Perez, 17, of North Myrtle Beach, was charged with disturbing schools. Bail has not been set.

According to the North Myrtle Beach High School Facebook page, law enforcment was notified and the situation resolved.

“There is no threat which would jeopardize the safety of our students and staff,” the post said.
