California middle school student allegedly threatens attack on school (w/ video)

A 12-year-old boy faces possible felony charges after authorities say he threatened via email to carry out a mass shooting at Twin Peaks Middle School in Poway, Calif. The San Diego Union-Tribune says the boy, a seventh-grade student at the school, was taken to a hospital for evaluation after investigators tracked him down and served a search warrant at his family home. Eleven guns were found there under lock and key, and the boy didn’t have access to them, police say. In the email, the boy listed one of his teachers by name and referred to 23 unidentified classmates as his targets.
