Watch as officers respond to shooting threat at Woodland High School
Police arrested three boys Monday in connection to the school shooting threat that caused a lockdown and evacuations at Woodland High School on Friday.
The three boys are all students at Woodland High School, according to the Woodland Police Department. Two of the boys are 15 years old and the third is 16 years old.
The arrests were made by a school resource officer with the Woodland Police Department at about 1 p.m. Monday, police said.
The boys “conspired to make the phone call” that prompted the lockdown, according to a news release from Woodland police.
Police believe that the 16-year-old boy made the phone call at the “prompting and urging” of the two 15-year-old boys, according to the release.
The lockdown occurred at about 10 a.m. Friday after a shooting threat to 911 was called in from inside the school, according to previous reporting by The Bee. Police responded and searched the school as students were bussed off campus, but no weapon or suspect was found during the search and no one appeared to be harmed.
The two 15-year-old boys were booked into the Yolo County Juvenile Detention Facility on charges of conspiracy. The 16-year-old boy was booked into the Yolo County Juvenile Detention Facility on charges of making a false report of a crime and conspiracy.
