2 Students Arrested, ‘Potential Mass Shooting’ at South Pasadena High School Thwarted (Video)

The South Pasadena Police Department said they received information from school officials that the students were allegedly planning “to kill 3 staff members and as many students as possible with firearms.”

Two South Pasadena High School students were arrested after allegedly plotting a mass shooting at the school, police announced Monday evening.


After serving warrants at their homes, detectives were able to obtain enough evidence to arrest the students, police said.

One of the students was taken into custody without incident, but the other, identified as a male, resisted and tried to flee, according to the release. He was eventually caught by arresting officers.

The detectives “stopped a potential mass shooting” as a result of the arrests, the release stated.

“This is a prime example of school officials recognizing suspicious behavior. It was this information that helped prevent a horrific tragedy,” Sgt. Brian Solinsky said in the release.
