Student at Glen A. Wilson High School in Hacienda Heights arrested over shooting threat

HACIENDA HEIGHTS, Calif. (KABC) -- A 17-year-old student at Glen A. Wilson High School in Hacienda Heights was arrested Saturday in connection to a shooting threat, which prompted a lockdown at the campus last week.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies swarmed the campus on Oct. 26 to conduct a campus-wide search after a student found a threatening note inside a textbook. The note claimed a shooter would strike at lunchtime.

Responding officials determined students and faculty were safe and there was no threat to the campus. Detectives were able to identify the 17-year-old as the suspect during the later investigation.

The suspect was booked at the sheriff's Industry station for making a criminal threat.

"As a community of educators, our goal is to provide every student with a safe learning environment," Hacienda La Puente Unified School District Superintendent Cynthia Parulan-Colfer said. "We work hard to accomplish this every day, and we are committed to taking every action to ensure that we protect the students in our care."

No further details were immediately released.
