SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 17-year-old boy who attends a Point Loma charter school was arrested Wednesday for allegedly making online threats to harm a teacher at that campus and carry out a shooting at a Clairemont Mesa intermediary school, authorities reported.
San Diego police got a call about noon from someone reporting seeing menacing social-media posts regarding violence at Charter School of San Diego on Rosecrans Street and Marston Middle School on Clairemont Drive, SDPD public-affairs Lt. Kevin Mayer said.
Officers found the boy at his Clairemont home about an hour later and took him into custody. No guns were recovered, Mayer said.
