Classes to resume Tuesday at Whittier Christian H.S. after shooting threat deemed not credible

Classes were canceled Monday at Whittier Christian High School due to a shooting threat made on social media.

Around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, police received multiple calls indicating a possible shooting at the school, located at 501 N Beach Blvd, the La Habra Police Department stated in a Facebook post.

School administrators were contacted and responded to the police station to assist in the investigation.

Authorities identified the source of the threat as a boy living in Whittier with his parents. 

Officers responded to the boy's home and interviewed him and his parents. After the lengthy interview, investigators determined that there was no credible threat to the school, the police department stated.

Officials with Whittier Christian High said the school decided to cancel classes Monday because the investigation into the threat went so late into Sunday evening.

Classes were set to resume as normal on Tuesday, school officials said.
