Lloyd Kennedy Charter School on Avery Lane and Pinecrest School on Pinecrest Avenue has been placed on lock down while the Aiken County Sheriff's Office and the Aiken Department of Public Safety seek Swiss Tyrone Council.

Council, 29, is wanted on charges of armed robbery, attempted murder, possession of a handgun during a violent crime, and unlawful carrying of a pistol in connection with the shooting at the Enmarket store on Tuesday morning.
