POWAY (CNS) - A Poway High School student faced possible criminal prosecution Thursday for allegedly threatening to shoot one classmate and do unspecified harm to others.
Administrators at the Espola Road campus contacted the county Sheriff's Department on Tuesday afternoon to report the 17-year-old girl's purported threats against fellow students, one of them named and the others unspecified, Sgt. Chad Boudreau said.
A deputy questioned the suspect, whose name was not released, before arresting her on suspicion of making a criminal threat, a felony.
There was no evidence the teen intended to follow through with the alleged threats, according to Boudreau.
"The student did not have access to any firearms, and there is no indication that anyone else was involved in the threats," the sergeant said.
Detectives will forward the results of their investigation to the county District Attorney's Office for possible filing of criminal charges against the suspect, who no longer attends the Espola Road campus.
"The San Diego (County) Sheriff's Department and Poway Unified School District take all threats to school safety seriously and will continue to thoroughly investigate any and all such threats," Boudreau said.
In a prepared statement, PUSD officials asserted that the arrested teen's fellow students were never in any danger from her.
