SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – San Diego County sheriff’s officials said emailed threats against Bonsall High School and Fallbrook High School are not credible and the case is being investigated as a possible “swatting” situation.
Sheriff’s officials said each school received emails “indicating explosive devices had been placed around” the campuses. Investigations were conducted at both schools and no explosive devices were found.
According to officials, a known student’s name was on the email address and deputies “conducted an investigation at the student’s family residence.” After the probe, deputies determined “the student was not involved and was possibly the victim of swatting.”
