A juvenile student from Pioneer School in Delano was arrested Monday at his home after officials said he had written comments on a bathroom tile about bringing firearms to school and shooting people. The student, 13 years old, has been identified and charged with criminal threats and threatening school officials. He was transported to Juvenile Hall. Anna Wyatt, the school principal, said a teacher notified her that a Snapchat post indicated who had written the threat. Delano officers investigated the incident and spoke with several students prior to arresting the juvenile. Chief Robert Nevarez said his officers responded and after their investigation found while the threat was credible, there does not appear to be a continued threat to students and school officials. Nevarez said out of an abundance of caution, there will be an increased police presence at Pioneer School through the end of the week.
