Security was stepped up Friday as a precaution at San Fernando High School following what officials determined was a “non- credible” threat.
“Parents were notified Thursday about a social media threat that raised concerns about the safety of students at San Fernando High School,” a Los Angeles Unified School District spokesperson said Friday morning.
“The incident was investigated and the threat was deemed non- credible. Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution, additional patrols were at the school on Thursday and will be there again today,” the statement said.
Crisis counselors were made available at campus in the 11000 block of O’Melveny Avenue.
According to Fox 11, the threat was written on the wall of a girls’ bathroom, and read, in part, “On Friday, I am shooting up the school. I’m tired of getting bullied. I must shoot everybody I see …”
For more crime news, a telephoned threat prompted the evacuation of a high school in Woodland Hills.
