POWAY (CNS) - A 20-year-old San Diego man was in custody Wednesday, accused of threatening to shoot and kill fellow students at the Poway Adult School, authorities said.
Jonathan Juarez was arrested at his home Tuesday night on suspicion of making criminal threats, according to San Diego County sheriff's Deputy Matthew Carpenter.
School staff reported to the sheriff's department that on Oct. 17, Juarez made a motion with his hand as if he was shooting a handgun as he made statements that he wanted to kill students at the Twin Peaks Road School, the deputy said in a statement.
"Students and staff were fearful Juarez would carry out his threats and cause harm to others," Carpenter said.
A subsequent investigation led to his arrest and a search of the suspect's home, according to Carpenter, who said no weapons were found in the residence.
Juarez was booked into San Diego Central Jail in lieu of $50,000.
Authorities did not immediately disclose what led to Juarez's alleged outburst.
