Another shooting threat hit a California high school exactly one month after the Florida Marjory Stoneman Douglas mass shooting, which killed 17 students and three faculty members. Thousands of students have been participating in the national #March For Our Lives walkout to protest Congress’ and Donald Trump’s failure to keep guns out of schools.
A photo showed up on Instagram of a warning to the San Leandro High School in San Leandro, CA, which is located between San Francisco and Oakland. The graffiti scrawled across a metal bathroom stall read:
‘@KTVU someone wrote this at San Leandro high school bath room in CA San Leandro now the school is in lock down please talk about this is not funny and this needs to be stopped.’
Apparently, someone with access to the high school wrote “I’m shooting the school,” reported KTVU:
‘I’m shooting the school tomorrow at 1. I’m sick of this sh*t. Better not come. F**ck this place.’
San Leandro High School appears to be on lockdown. Kids have been notifying their parents, who in turn, called the KTVU newsroom with the information.
‘This was us only 5 minuets before the lockdown happened at San Leandro high school, we wanted our voices to be heard for the nation wide walk our walk at 10, such irony is sad.’
The San Leandro School District stated that it has ordered the school grounds inspected, and thus far, all students and staff members are safe:
‘This is strictly a precautionary move in order to systematically inspect the school grounds.’
‘#BREAKING: San Leandro High School on lockdown, according to school district.’
