Sheriff: 'Disgruntled student' allegedly overheard threatening to shoot at school

A student allegedly threatened to bring a gun to El Camino High School after being told he couldn't have his headphones in class

Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District resource Officer Marino Chavez reported that he overheard the student threatening that "he was going to shoot up the school sometime in the next three weeks", reported the Whittier Daily News.

A 17-year-old who had earlier tangled with an El Camino High School teacher about wearing headphones in class mumbled something after lunch about "shooting up the campus" within three weeks, according to KTLA.

A spokesman for the California school district said the student had been unhappy with a rule banning headphones in the classroom when he was heard mumbling about returning with a gun.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida told the Associated Press deputies discovered "multiple guns and ammunition" after searching the student's home.

No weapons were found on the student at the time, officials said. Deputies were called, and an investigation resulted in finding a collection of weapons and ballistic evidence at the student's home, Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell said at a Wednesday news conference.

A few hours after Chavez raised the alarm, Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators found a cache of firearms, including two semiautomatic rifles, two handguns and 90 high-capacity magazines, at his home, reported the Los Angeles Times.

The teen was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats. The teen's brother, 28, has also been arrested on weapons charges.

The threat was overheard by a school security guard, who alerted the authorities.

"He did say that he was just kidding, he did not mean it", Chavez recalled.

While the actual credibility of those threats is questionable, school authorities prefer to take no chances in wake of the deadly Florida shooting that took the lives of 17 people.

"We will remain vigilant in our efforts to make sure that we are doing everything possible when it comes to safety and security for our entire school community", she said.

Florida's school shooting is the deadliest since 2012, when a shooter opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, killing 20 students and teachers.
