All afterschool activities canceled at Beach High School after incident in parking lot

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - All afterschool activities and athletic events for Beach High School have been canceled for the remainder of this week after an incident at the school on Tuesday.

According to an official with the Savannah-Chatham Public School System, a vehicle drove into the Beach High parking lot Tuesday and caused a disturbance during afterschool activities. According to a police report, a person was seen on video leaning out of a car and raising his hand. Coaches said they think he was holding a gun in his hand.

Surveillance footage from the football fields showed a black car driving in a parking lot that had a man waving something in the air in his hand out of the car window.

Police say they can’t tell what the man is actually holding in the surveillance video.

The school system said in a statement that they’re taking “all necessary precautions” to keep students and staff safe.

The incident is being investigated by campus police with help from the Savannah Police Department.
