SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A 15-year-old detained on suspicion of making threats against San Jose’s Evergreen Valley High School was released Friday after police found no evidence that he was responsible for the crime.

A shelter-in-place order was issued at the school around 9:30 a.m. Friday after a staff member spotted someone he believed to be the student in question.

The student, who allegedly stated that he would “shoot-up” the school on a social media website on Thursday night, was interviewed Friday afternoon to determine if he would be charged with a crime, but was released to his father after detectives found no evidence that he was responsible for making the threats, police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.

Police were alerted about the alleged threat at Evergreen Valley High School on Thursday night and were able to identify the student and search his residence, but did not locate any weapons or signs of a plan to attack the school.

That student, and several others, told detectives about hearing rumors of the threat, but could not show the social media posts to police.

Police said the information given to detectives thus far has been “unsubstantiated.”

The investigation is ongoing.

    I remember even 20+ years ago our school getting bomb threats and having to evacuate the rooms and stand outside!

    Sounds like somthing a 15 year old might do but what our youth and the parents better understand is there is a lot of very sever crimes that 13 (sometimes even younger are guilty of and its no longer being taken so much as just childs play. just for example according to the CA state DOJ “persons between 13 to 16 committ over 50 percent of all molesting of young children (not adult dirty old men as it has been made to be believed) and 17 to 25 committ 1 /5th of all violent rapes but being persons under 18 are not required to register as a sex offender in California and for good reasons 1. there brains have not fully formed as yet and if you are old enough to remember 2 The only reason that the age of becoming an adult in California became 18 from 21 was do to not having enough warm bodies to send into war so they brought down the age of being an adult so to be able to be drafted to put more persons into military service not because by magic they became more smarter. But the fact is young persons better take heed big brother “IS” watching you ready to make you its prey as many of you have done that yourselves.
