School Shooting Threat & Racist Image Draw Attention To Local High Schools

School Shooting Threat Neutralized

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department says they’ve detained at least one student in relation to a school shooting threat. The student in custody is from Elk Grove and attends Elk Grove Charter School. Two Arden Arcade High Schools, Jesuit High School and Rio Americano High School, were apparently the targets of the threat, prompting law enforcement to lock both schools down. The online threat,  as well as the arrest of the minor suspect, occurred on Tuesday afternoon.
Officials say the threat was posted on social media. Additionally, officials placed both El Camino Fundamental High School and Del Dayo Elementary School under a shelter-in-place order. Earlier this month 3 mass shootings rocked the nation, raising alarms about gun and school safety.

More Trouble For Rio Americano


Important to note, this is the second time in the space of a week Rio American High School has been in the news. Last week students at the Arden Arcade high school received a racist image of the school website on their cell phones. Supposedly, the image was apparently altered to include racist statements, according to officials. The image included the words, “District-Wide High School No Black People Policy.”
The Arden Arcade Area is not quite as diverse as some other areas of Sacramento. Consequently, the ramifications of such racist imagery is that African Americans students and families of Rio Americano High School, as well as non-Caucasian students and families are feeling a bit less welcome.
