SACRAMENTO — Jesuit and Rio Americano high schools were placed on lockdown due to a shooting threat posted to social media Tuesday.
Investigators believe the threat was made by a former student, according to Sacramento County Sheriff’s Sgt. Tess Deterding.
Deterding said later Tuesday that a juvenile was detained and investigators did not believe anyone else was outstanding.
UPDATE: all three schools are cleared. Lockdown lifted at Rio Americano and shelter in place has been lifted at Del Dayo and El Camino.
