California school shooting plot thwarted, police say

Jacobsen said the school safety officer overheard the boy mumble to himself that he was going to bring a gun to campus in three weeks. The student, who is being held without bail, remains unidentified due to being a minor, said sheriff department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida, the Los Angeles Times reported. Two AR-15 rifles, two handguns, and 90 high capacity military-grade magazines were found at the student suspect's home, McDonnell said.
A 17-year-old student has been arrested after threatening to open fire at a California school, and his adult brother faces five charges after weapons were found in their home, authorities say.
McDonnell said the teen faces a charge of making criminal threats and the brother is accused of possession of an assault weapon and other violations.
Robert Jacobsen, the in-house counsel for Norwalk La Mirada Unified School District, said the student was upset by the request made by a teacher and made the threatening comment Friday outside the classroom.
One of the AR-15s was registered to the student's 28-year-old brother, a military veteran, but the other rifle was unregistered, which is a crime in California.
The threat to commit a school shooting was thwarted "thanks to attentive ears of school resource personnel and diligent investigators", the sheriff's office said in a news release. Jacobsen said the comment was overheard by Marino Chavez, a school safety officer.

The security officer notified school officials, who contacted the sheriff's department.
The alleged threat at El Camino High School occurred Friday, two days after the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.
Sheriff Jim McDonnell credited "attentive" school resource personnel, as well as "diligent" investigators, with preventing what he said could have been a unsafe outcome.
When confronted by SC deputies, the student in the photo said he posted it in jest. 'I said, "Well, you can't say those things on a school campus"'.
This is the second serious threat at El Camino High School that week, the sheriff said. "In this day and age, we have to be proactive and make that report and go from there".
Since that meeting, even more evidence has shown a strengthening economy, most notably the fastest wage growth in nine years. The Fed has been hiking rates for more than two years despite below-target inflation in the hope that it would pick up.
