A Fallbrook High School student was arrested after allegedly threatening gun violence at the North County school on Monday morning.
The San Diego Sheriff’s Department said the threat consisted of “a social media post of a picture of a handgun and a warning to not attend school” on Monday.
Deputies arrested the 15-year-old suspect on Sunday evening without incident.
“Although the suspect indicated the post was only meant as a joke, based upon the severity of the crime he was booked at Juvenile Hall,” the department said in a statement.
Deputies said no other students were involved and classes were to be held as scheduled on Monday.
