Four students arrested following threats made at some South Coast high schools
Students claim shooting threats were "jokes".
A total of four Ventura County high school students have now been arrested in connection with social media postings threatening shootings at some Oxnard area high schools.
Oxnard Police say a 14-year-old Oxnard High School student was arrested over a posted threat about a school shooting on the campus. A 17-year-old student was arrested for the same reason over a threat posted about a possible attack at Hueneme High School.
Oxnard Police investigators say in both cases, the students said they made the threats as jokes.
The arrests came after a student at Pacifica High School, and another Oxnard High School student were arrested following similar incidents last week. In addition to criminal charges, the students could potentially be expelled.
