Teen arrested in Menifee after allegedly threatening school shooting

Police arrested a 17-year-old this weekend who had allegedly threatened to “shoot up a school” and “kids” in Menifee, California, about 75 miles east of Los Angeles.

As reported by ABC News, and the Orange County Register, the teen had allegedly made the threats on social media. Police said they arrested him after finding him with a “ghost gun,” a gun without a serial number making it untraceable.

The teen is a student at Heritage High School in Perris Union School District.

There have been a number of threats of school shootings in California since the shooting in Uvalde, Texas. A Berkeley teen was arrested last week after allegedly trying to recruit students for a school shooting that would include explosives.
