On February 4, 2016, the Mono County Sheriff’s Office received calls from concerned parents regarding threats to students and staff at Coleville High School from a fellow student.
The Mono County Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation into the complaints. During the course of the investigation, the officers developed credible information that threats had been made against students and staff and were provided a timeline when the threats would be carried out.
Based on the findings of the preliminary investigation, a male juvenile was interviewed and was determined to be the suspect in the threats against the students and staff. The male juvenile was detained and transported to Juvenile Hall in Independence, California. None of the students or staff was physically harmed as the suspect was detained prior to implementation of the threats.
