Mass shooting plot at SoCal high school allegedly thwarted by alert security guard
Quote:WHITTIER, Calif. -- 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 said 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 told The Associated Press deputies discovered "multiple guns and ammunition" after searching the student's home.

The suspect is a 17-year-old boy, according to the Whittier Daily News. A spokesperson for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District told the publication the boy threatened to go home and bring back a gun following a disagreement with a teacher over his headphones, which are not allowed during class.

It was unclear if the suspect has been arrested, or who purchased or owns the weapons, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Officials scheduled a news conference for Wednesday.


Jesus, thank goodness the security guard took measures and report to the police about this kid. Otherwise, we'll be hearing more "thoughts and prayers".

A good goblin? There might be, if we just looked. But I think... The only good goblins are the ones who never come out of their stinking holes!

I'm so sick and tired of these teenagers trying to prove a point that violence is the answer to everything. Here in Michigan, there has been at least five school death threats causing one school to be on 'lockdown' because one simple bullet was found. What's going on is these teens who are either plotting or just making threats want to have their 15 minutes of publicity just like the shooter in the Florida incident. And I just read that a 10 year old wanted to plot against his school. This is just so sad.
