Three Fallbrook High School Students Arrested for Bringing Loaded Weapon to School

Tip Leads to Lockdown at School

Fallbrook CA— Three Fallbrook High School Students (two 15‐year‐olds, one 14‐year old) are under arrest on suspicion of bringing a loaded gun to school. It is the policy of the Sheriff’s Department not to release information about juvenile arrestees.

Deputies were called to the 2400 block of South Stage Coach Lane just after 10:00 a.m. when a student reported seeing a social media post. It showed a photo of a student holding a gun in a school

Once deputies arrived, the school was placed on lockdown for the safety of the students and staff. The investigation led deputies to students who had information of where the gun might be
located. A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) K‐9 specially trained to find weapons was called in to help with the search.

The gun was eventually found hidden in a classroom. After the gun was located, the lockdown was lifted and students were allowed to go home for the day. No one was hurt.

The investigation continues and there could be more arrests.

The Sheriff’s Department and Fallbrook Sheriff’s Substation would like to thank the ATF, Fallbrook High School and Fallbrook Union High School District, as well as the community for their
cooperation during this incident.
