Lowcountry police look for robber, schools reopened

Two Lowcountry schools are reopened after a nearby business was robbed earlier Tuesday morning.Around 8 a.m. the City of Goose Creek Police Department says the Dollar General was robbed at gunpoint. Police are now searching for the two suspects involved in the robbery that led to locking down two nearby schools. One of the suspects had a rifle in the robbery.
College Park Middle and College Park Elementary schools were both on lockdown but later reopened, while officials continue to search for the suspects. Charleston and Berkeley County Police Departments are both assisting the City of Goose Creek in the investigation. Law enforcement officials believe this morning’s robbery to be connected with a weekend robbery at a restaurant next door to the Dollar General that also involved a man with a rifle.
