AIKEN, SC (WFXG) - The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office and Aiken Department of Public Safety are currently searching for a suspect connected to the Tuesday shooting of an En Market clerk.

Capt. Eric Abdullah said that Lloyd Charter School and Pinecrest School in Aiken County were on lock-down earlier Thursday, Oct. 10 after it was reported that suspect, 29-year-old Swiss Tyrone Council, may have been in the area near the schools. Both schools’ lock-downs have been lifted.

There are signs that Council is no longer in the area, however, officials are still patrolling the area for precaution.
