Hews Media Group-Community News has obtained an alarming email sent out last Friday, Feb. 23. to the parents of Ross Middle School in the ABC Unified School District writing about yet another threat of violence on campus by a student.

The Lakewood Sheriff’s Department immediately responded and investigated the situation and arrested a student for making a criminal threat.

The same Friday, a 15-year-old girl was arrested on allegations of posting violent threats on social media against Gahr High School in the ABC in Cerritos.

Deputies arrested the girl, whose name was withheld because of her age, about 12:30 p.m. at the school at 1111 Artesia Blvd., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The arrest was made following an investigation that began after students alerted school officials of the social media posts, Lt. Steven Marella of the sheriff’s Cerritos Station said.

The day before, another arrest was made at Kennedy High in the Anaheim Unified District by the La Palma Police Department when a male juvenile made criminal threats.
