A teen was arrested following reports of a potential threat of a school shooting at a middle school in Orangevale, Sacramento County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Lisa Bowman said.
On Wednesday afternoon, Sacramento sheriff safe schools officers, who worked in connection with the San Juan Unified School District, received information of a potential threat of a shooting at Louis Pasteur Middle School.
The comments were allegedly made from a male student, Bowman said.
After interviewing students who overheard the suspect make remarks of a shooting at the school and evading police, safe school officers and sheriff deputies identified the student and contacted him at his residence.
The teen was arrested and transported to Sacramento County Juvenile Detention Center for a felony charge of criminal threats, according to Bowman.
