Police say 11-year-old planned to hurt students

School in Whittier Calif. where a security guard allegedly overheard a disgruntled student threatening to shoot at the school

The teen's older brother, a U.S. Army veteran, told authorities he owned the firearms, and also has been arrested on suspicion of possessing an assault weapon, importing a high-capacity magazine, failing to register a handgun and criminal storage of firearms, McDonnell told KABC.

The investigation began after the 17-year-old suspect was asked to remove his headphones and made the threat against El Camino High School, a school official said.

The 17-year-old, who has not been named because he is a juvenile, has been arrested and faces a charge of making a criminal threat.

Robert Jacobsen, general counsel for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District, said the teen didn't like a teacher's rule banning headphones in class but declined to provide further details about him, citing privacy issues.

Southern California authorities say they took action immediately on a student's threat to open fire at his high school even though he claimed it was a joke.

Two AR-15s and 90 high-capacity magazines were found at the home of a "disgruntled" teenager who was allegedly overheard threatening a school shooting, the Los Angeles County Sheriff said.

School safety officer Marino Chavez thought he overheard something alarming Friday at a Whittier, Calif., high school just 48 hours after a Florida school shooting.


Chavez says the student said he was kidding and didn't mean it.

Sheriff Jim McDonnell credited "attentive" school resource personnel, as well as "diligent" investigators, with preventing what he said could have been a unsafe outcome.

This is the second serious threat at El Camino High School that week, the sheriff said.

Police in Los Angeles say a student who threatened to open fire at his school, two days after the Florida high school shooting, had an arsenal of weapons at his home.

When deputies conducted a search of the student's home, they found "multiple guns and ammunition," Sheriff's spokesperson Nicole Nishida told The Associated Press.

A sheriff's department news conference was scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
