US High School Receives Threat of New AttackSecurity will be heightened Friday at the Santana High School in southern US State of California, where two students were killed in a shooting Monday, after receiving threat of a new attack.
San Diego County police said the threat was made Thursday to a Santana student via an Internet message that vowed to "complete what Andy hadn't finished", referring to the gunman, Charles Andrew Williams, who carried out the Monday shooting. The message said more violence could be expected Friday.
Sergeant Mike Radovich of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said the threat was taken seriously, and police had launched an investigation. He said security would be beefed up at the school for Friday classes.
"We are going to assume that it's serious until proven otherwise," he said.
Despite the threat, Principal Karen Degischer told a school assembly Thursday that classes would not be canceled Friday. She urged the students not to let such threats force them to live in fear, and recommended they wear the school's colors of purple and gold Friday in a show of solidarity.
Eighty percent of the 1,900 students enrolled in the school showed up for classes Thursday, Degischer said.
Two students were killed Monday and 13 people wounded after a shooting spree allegedly carried out by the 15-year-old Williams, known by friends as Andy. He has been charged with murder.
