Deputies investigate threat to Tierra Del Sol Middle School in Lakeside

Posted: Updated:

LAKESIDE (NEWS 8) - Sheriff's deputies will provide extra security Wednesday at a Lakeside school after someone made an unfounded threat of violence. 

Sheriff's officials say there is no valid threat to Tierra Del Sol Middle School, where a student reportedly wrote a threatening message in a campus bathroom. 

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department conducted an investigation after being made aware of a threat to the school, located at 9611 Petite Lane, said Sgt. Tim Chantler of the Sheriff's Department.

The Sheriff's department would not provide many details about the latest threat, only saying that so far it seems not to be real but an investigation is underway. 

The threat comes days after the latest school shooting left eights students and two teachers dead at Santa Fe High School outside Houston, Texas and just hours after the debate over safety and firearms took center stage in Del Mar.

Second Amendment advocates are aiming to keep gun shows at the Del Mar Fair Grounds, despite the controversy surrounding them.

On Tuesday, they delivered 3,000 letters to the Fair Board in support of keeping the gun show.

The board is scheduled to vote on whether or not to renew the Fairground's contract with Crossroads of the West Gun Show in September.

The Sheriff's Department says there doesn’t appear to be any validity to this latest threat of violence against the middle school, but they are taking every threat seriously.

Out of an abundance of caution, additional law enforcement will be deployed in and around the campus on Wednesday, Chantler said.

Classes will go on as regularly scheduled.

    While government spending on local homeless services has dramatically increased throughout the county over the last decade, the effect of that spending is difficult to quantify, according to a report released Tuesday by the San Diego Taxpayers Educational Foundation.
