17-Year-Old Boy Detained After Social Media Threat of Gun Violence at South Pasadena High School
A South Pasadena High School student was detained Friday after making a social media threat about gun violence on campus, police said.
The 17-year-old boy turned himself in to the South Pasadena Police Department and was taken into custody, Sgt. Spencer Louie said. The boy’s identity was not released because he is a minor.
An investigation was launched Friday morning after someone had taken a snapshot of the threatening post and shown it to police, officials said.
After officers determined the post was created by a student, they went to his home, but he wasn’t there, police said. They eventually managed to reach him by phone.
