POWAY, Calif. - A student at Twin Peaks Middle School in Poway is in custody, suspected of threatening a mass shooting at the school.
According to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, on Saturday morning, deputies from the Poway sheriffs station learned about an email threat that had been sent to an administrator at Twin Peaks Middle School the night before.
"The threat indicated that on Monday, Feb. 11, 23 students and a Twin Peaks Middle School teacher would be shot," said sheriff's Capt. Bill Donahue, who is with the Poway sheriff's substation.
Surrounded by the superintendent of the Poway Unified School District, along with Poway's mayor and the head of the school board, Donahue said the person who sent the email talked about having the firepower to carry out a devastating attack.
"The email made reference to 3,000 rounds of ammunition as well as numerous firearms," he said.

The disturbing discovery:
"Several computers, along with numerous rifles and handguns were seized from the residence," Donahue said.
Donahue said the student's parents were shocked at the allegations against their son. He said the guns were locked up and that the student did not have access to a key.
"A total of five rifles, three shotguns and three handguns were taken..."
The parents had guns! Oh no!
Bets on if they get their property back?
“...the guns were locked up and that the student did not have access to a key.”
“A total of five rifles, three shotguns and three handguns were taken...”
On what grounds?????
The owls are not what they seem...
It sounds like these guns belonged to the parents. what right do the cops have to take them? The cop even said the guns were locked up and the kid didn’t have a key.
What would the Log Lady have to say about this?
I live maybe 5 miles from this school and I was surprised to see that the “news” report didn’t reference the local story from last week from the same school.
There seems to be a student who is accusing other students of bullying and the parents took it to the media. The parents said nothing was being done and they were frustrated.
I thought for sure these two stories would be connected - at least referenced to let the public know that they weren’t.
Yeah I know......
Do you have a link to that story. I hadn’t heard it.
New gun control (or any violence threatened) law: You threaten to hurt anyone with anything (gun, knife, your bare hands, etc.) and once proven you made the threat, you will be hanged publicly. The threats will stop.
You think this is bad? Obama has a kill list and says he can kill Americans without any trial. (Remember, this is the same Obama that wanted to confer Constitutional rights to the 9/11 foreign national and give him criminal trial in NY!) How long do you think it will be until people are hauled off in the middle of the night?
Given the emotion, at the next mass shooting will innocent Americans be rounded up and held without a peep from the corrupt MSM?
Interesting that they did nothing about bullying and death threats...and now make a gun grab based on another threat.
That was a very weird film - excellent sub-reference, though.
Dennis Miller quality.
Does that have something to do with the movie DUNE?
It would work for vote fraud, too, and is why they will never try it.
Already happened. Remember this?
Some of the earlier articles did mention the bullying thing. From friends, I know there’s been a HUGE issue of bullying at Garden Road Elementary and it’s NOT being handled well there....or not being handled period. I’d guess with that being a feeder school, that a lot of the discontent may be filtering up. That was sort of the case a few decades ago, too, though, I suppose.
Obviously I’m also local :-) I’m about the same distance away (and actually attended TPMS once we moved to Poway) But like you, had also wondered if it would end up that the two cases were linked.
I wonder, too, if we’ll ever hear who the teacher at the center of it is...? I have a lot of friends with kids at Twin Peaks right now so perhaps based on security presence today it’ll leak out.
After the situation sometime in the past year or so (my timing may be off a bit - give or take a few months ago?) with the Poway High students - I think they were all lacrosse players (?) who were at a party and one died by gunshot and there was the whole odd situation of where the gun came from and what happened, I’m not totally surprised about this...
I think Poway is trying to really prevent another PR nightmare (and more deaths in their student body...there have been a string of them at the high school beginning about a year before Chelsea King, many of which were very tragic or with suspicious circumstances, though not gun related other than the one party, at least that I recall) even if they don’t handle it in the way everyone deems best.
