San Diego School Violence Threat



San Diego Sheriff’s Department sent a press release out describing the threats. It is bellow. There will be a press conference this afternoon.


On the morning of February 9, 2013, deputies from the Poway Sheriff’s Station learned about an email threat that had been sent to an administrator at the Twin Peaks Middle School the night before. The threat indicated that on Monday, February 11, 2013, 23 students and a Twin Peaks Middle School teacher would be shot. The email made reference to 3000 rounds of ammunition as well as numerous firearms. The teacher is not being identified at this time.

Working with the Poway Unified School District, detectives from the Poway Criminal Apprehension Team (PCAT) and Computer And Technology Crime High-Tech Response Team (CATCH) immediately launched an investigation in an attempt to identify the source of the email. CATCH is a taskforce consisting of federal, state and local agencies that investigate technology related crimes. Detectives identified a 12 year old student at Twin Peaks Middle School as a possible suspect.

On February 9, 2013, at approximately 5:30 P.M., detectives served a search warrant at the student’s residence. Several computers, along with numerous rifles and handguns, were seized from the residence. The student was taken into custody and was admitted to a local hospital for treatment and evaluation. There is no evidence to suggest anyone else was involved in making the threats and it is believed to be an isolated incident.

This case will be submitted to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office for review and evaluation. Making a terrorist threat is a felony in the State of California. The San Diego Sheriff’s Department and the Poway Unified School District take all threats to school safety seriously and will continue to thoroughly investigate all such threats.

Man accused of threatening North County school arrested


Laurel Elementary School

OCEANSIDE, Calif. — A 61-year-old North County man was arrested Friday on suspicion of falsely reporting an impending shooting at an elementary school near his home six days after the second-deadliest campus gun rampage in U.S. history.

Alex Paul Rodriguez of Oceanside was taken into custody this morning at the College Boulevard residence he shares with his wife, according to police.

Rodriguez allegedly left a message on a voice-mail system at Laurel Elementary School at 4:15 a.m. Thursday, claiming that there would be a shooting there about seven hours later.

“The caller ended the message with what is being described as maniacal laughter,” Lt. Leonard Mata said.

Due to the threat, teachers kept pupils inside locked classrooms for the day, and police officers intensively patrolled the western Oceanside campus and surrounding neighborhood.

Investigators were able to trace the menacing call to a cell phone owned by Rodriguez, according to Mata.
