SACRAMENTO - A local high school student was arrested Sunday after making a post on Facebook that included threats against El Camino High School, said Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies.
The 17-year-old boy was arrested after a concerned parent of another student reported the Facebook post to the Sheriff's Department.
An investigation revealed the post was made by an El Camino High School student who said he would commit a shooting on campus the following morning, said Sergeant Jason Ramos.
According to Ramos, authorities took quick action, and with help from the San Juan Unified School District, located the student at his home.
No specific people were mentioned in the post and deputies found no items that would have allowed the student to carry out the threat, Ramos said.
The student, who was not identified due to his age, was taken into custody on a felony charge of threatening to commit a crime resulting in serious injury.
