Authorities say they’ve thwarted a student’s plot for a mass shooting at a Southern California high school.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says Tuesday that a security guard at El Camino High School in Whittier overhead a ‘disgruntled student’ threaten to open fire on the school on Friday, just two days after 17 people were gunned down at a Florida high school.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida tells The Associated Press that deputies discovered ‘multiple guns and ammunition’ after searching the student’s home.
Officials wouldn’t provide additional details and scheduled a news conference for Wednesday morning.
According to San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the 17-year-old boy got into an argument with a teacher because she told him he couldn’t wear headphones in school.
Law enforcement was at the school just 45 minutes after the threat was reported.
