Rosemont Student Arrested for Sharing Alleged School Shooting Threat on Snapchat

SACRAMENTO -- Parents and police were on high alert Sunday after students received a Snapchat picture of a gun and an alleged threat that there would be a shooting on a local high school campus.

A picture of a gun with a threatening caption was sent to Rosemont High students Monday morning.

It was business as usual for the start of the week at Rosemont High School, despite a picture that made the rounds the night before and had many parents worried.

The picture, sent out by a Rosemont student, shows an assault rifle on a bed with the caption, "For people that call me a school shooter just wait till monday."

The student was arrested around 8:13 p.m. Sunday at his home on La Riviera Drive. Sacramento police officers later discovered that the weapon was actually a replica airsoft gun.

Most of the students FOX40 spoke with are not worried about the potential threat and were attending classes Monday.
