March 1, 2018
On Wednesday February 28 at approximately 2pm the Culver City Police Department received a call of a student making threats at Culver City High School. Given the attacks on students and teachers around the country CCPD was quick to react. The School Resource Officer immediately responded along with Patrol Officers and Detectives.
CCPD personnel met with School Staff and learned that students had overheard threats being made by a fellow student. During the course of the investigation the student was identified as a 17-year-old male. His name was not released because he is a minor.
The suspect had left school prior to the arrival of the officers. Detectives responded to the student's residence where he was located. Detectives met with his parents, who according to CCPD were very cooperative. After a thorough investigation, the student was arrested and later booked at the Culver City Police Department for Criminal Threats. He was later released to the custody of Eastlake Juvenile Hall. A firearm that was located at the residence was voluntarily turned over to the detectives. This incident is being presented to the District Attorney's Office today for criminal filing considerations.
The police department noted "This incident highlights the importance of students to come forward if they are made aware of these types of threats. Please remember if you see or hear something, say something."
The Culver City Police Department reminded the public that the unsafe storage of firearms is a crime. Adults who choose to keep firearms in their home are required to store them in a safe or with a locking device attached. The law related to the Criminal Storage of Firearms can be found under California Penal Code Section 25100.
