Student Arrested for Making Criminal Threats

On Thursday, March 29, 2018 San Rafael Police Department School Resource Officer Michael Mathis was notified by the staff at Davidson Middle School of a threat made by a student the previous day.

According to witnesses, a sixth grade student made threatening statements regarding a school shooting while on the bus yesterday afternoon. The threats were against two separate schools. Several witnesses reported the incident to their parents, who then notified school officials.

Corporal Mathis and school administrators immediately began an investigation into the threat. The student, a twelve-year-old male, was identified and interviewed. His parents were contacted. They have cooperated with the investigation and consented to a search of their home. San Rafael Police Detectives confirmed the family does not own any weapons. The student does not have access to firearms.

Due to the seriousness of the allegation, the student was taken to the Marin County Juvenile Hall. He was referred to the Marin County Juvenile Probation Department for making criminal threats. The San Rafael Police Department and San Rafael City School District take school safety seriously.
