HESPERIA – At around 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday morning deputies were dispatched to Ranchero Middle School for a potential threat to the school. When deputies arrived at the school located at 17607 Ranchero Road they learned that a student told another student that he will “shoot up the school” and that he had a weapon in his possession. School staff immediately made contact with the student who was confirmed to be on campus.
Hesperia Unified School District Superintendent David Olney told a 24/7 Headline News reporter that he is still gathering information, but could confirm there was a student making threats. He went on to say that there was never a gun on campus.
“It is our protocol that any time a student makes a threat, even if there appears to be no intent, our school police are immediately contacted and involved, as they were in this situation,” said Olney. “It is also standard procedure for our officers to conduct a thorough threat assessment that not only involves the student, but also those he/she lives with. Administration will also follow up with appropriate disciplinary action. The safety of our students is of primary concern.”
