A 14-year-old boy was booked on suspicion of making terrorist threats at La Quinta High School, authorities said Thursday.
Deputies picked up the boy after receiving a report around 4 p.m. Wednesday that the boy had threatened other students at the school some three hours earlier, said Sgt. Dennis E. Gutierrez, a Riverside Sheriff's Department spokesman.
The arresting officers worked according to the department's "Kids With Guns Protocol," but the student had only made verbal threats, and no weapons were found, he said.
The boy was booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of making terrorist threats, Gutierrez said, adding that no student was hurt at the high school, located at 79255 Westward Ho Drive.
