(Feb. 22, 2018, 7:50 p.m.) -- LBPD has issued a release indicating that earlier today (Feb. 22) it arrested an 8th grader at Tincher (K-8) school for alleged threats to harm others at the school.

In a release, LBPD states:

On 2/22/18 at approximately 12:00 pm, officers were dispatched to Tincher Preparatory School (K-8 grade) to assist a Long Beach School District Board of Education Public Safety officer who had a student detained for making threats to harm others at the school. The student had made the threat in the past week. Today a staff member overheard students talking about the threat and reported it to the Long Beach Police Department.

The 14-year old 8th grade student was subsequently arrested by Long Beach Police Department for threatening school officials. The Police Department is committed to fully investigate each threat. When probable cause exists, appropriate enforcement action will be taken. We focus on ensuring the safety of students, school staff and community members as we respond to these incidents.

We continue to encourage students, parents, and school staff to immediately report any information that poses a threat to the safety of others. We continue to communicate with the Long Beach Unified School District, as well as local, regional and federal law enforcement partners, to share information and ensure the safety of our schools and our community. We ask that the public remember to follow the philosophy of "See Something, Say Something" when witnessing or hearing suspicious activity.
