Staff Writer

An investigation continues into a reported threat made by a Riverside High School student who made a threat on Friday to bring a gun to school.
The student allegedly made a threat on social media that he was going to bring a gun to school on Feb. 2.
After administrators notified Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Resource Deputy Mike Brooks the high school was placed on modified lockdown while the threat was being investigated. Riverside Middle School and Riverside Elementary were also placed on modified lockdown due to their proximity to the high school.
Spokane County Sheriff’s Department Major Crimes detectives joined the investigation when student could not be found.
The juvenile was located by members of the U.S. Marshal’s Office and arrested for an unrelated juvenile warrant later in the day. Shortly afterward the modified lockdown was lifted.
