A 17-year-old student was arrested Sunday after reportedly threatening on Facebook to shoot someone at El Camino High School during school today.
The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said the student was arrested after a parent was alerted to the Facebook posting.
Because of the arrest, "it is not believed that any imminent threat exists to anyone attending this school (Monday) morning," officials said Sunday. Nonetheless, deputies will be on campus today.
The suspect wasn't identified because he is a juvenile. He was arrested on suspicion of threatening to commit a crime resulting in serious injury. The Facebook post didn't mention the names of alleged targets, according to police reports.
