A 12-year-old boy has been arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot up a Victorville middle school, and police seized multiple guns at the child's home, according to deputies.

San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies responded to Mesa Linda Middle School on Oct. 24, after several students reported that they overheard another student threatening to shoot up the school. Officers detained the 12-year-old on campus, and searched both the student and the school without finding any weapons.
