EL CENTRO, Calif. – A second person has been arrested from Central Union High School in connection with the gun threat last week and police say it’s still an ongoing investigation.
Police say this the second student had information about last week’s threat and conspired to get rid of the evidence.
Last week a student posted anonymously on social media that a gun will be brought to school and someone was going to get hurt.
“I was surprised. Sad to say that there’s children once again thinking this way,” Diana Gastelum said.
Gastelum has a son who’s a freshman attending Central Union High School.
“I hope they get educated from this. They need to know what the consequences are,” Gastelum said.
The superintendent says school is trying to get back to normal and parents and the community can rest assured safety measures are in place.
“We do have the school resource officer at the school every day and our security staff as well. I’m very confident in our administration and our safe school plans will enact in case there’s any additional threats,” Central Union High School Superintendent Bryan Thomason said.
Authorities can’t common if the two are in juvenile hall because they are minors.
