FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Prepared by Captain Michael Loarie

On Thursday, May 09, 2013, between 10:00 and 11:15 AM, Escondido High School was on lock down because of a report of a male with a gun on campus.  The call came in from a person that EPD could not immediately locate.  Several EPD officers and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department ASTREA helicopter responded and searched the school.  The male with the gun was not located. 

After the call was cleared, EPD School Resource Officer La Rose and detectives investigated the report.  They developed leads and began to focus on a juvenile they believed was involved in the original call.  It became apparent that there never was a man on the campus with a gun and that the original caller had made the story up.

At about 4:10 PM, EPD arrested a 17 year-old male at his home without incident.  The teenager was arrested for filing a false report of an emergency.

EPD will be available for media interviews at 6:15 PM.
