TORRANCE (CNS) – Torrance police Monday were investigating a “non-credible threat” allegedly made by a student against North High School.
Authorities were made aware Friday of “an image uploaded on social media relating to a school threat” against the high school located at 3620 W. 182nd St., according to Torrance Police Department Sgt. Mark Ponegalek.
“During the investigation, the student was identified and officers were working with staff from North High School throughout this investigation,” Ponegalek said. “On that same day, officers and detectives responded to the student’s house and made contact with the student and their parents.”
Police determined the threat made against North High School was not credible after searching the home and interviewing the student and parents, who fully cooperated with the investigation, police said.
It was not immediately known if the student was arrested or facing any criminal charges.
An investigation into the threat was ongoing, Ponegalek said.
