Rancho High School student arrested after allegedly threatening a school schooting

Posted by Neil Shouse | Mar 01, 2018 | 0 Comments

Yesterday, Las Vegas Metropolitan police arrested a 16-year-old Rancho High School student for allegedly threatening to shoot up the school. The teen faces charges for making a terrorist threat after he reportedly phoned of the district offices and made the threat. However, police do not think that the teen's threat was credible.

"After a tragedy like the Parkland massacre, it is expected to see an uptick in these kinds of stories," commented Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Michael Becker. "A lot of the times, these allegations are blown way out of proportion. If the boy's attorney can show that he lacked any malicious intent, his charges should be dismissed."
