Added security at Tucson high school after threats

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima County authorities say they'll be additional security at Tucson's Sabino High School after recent threats of violence.

County Sheriff's deputies and Tucson Unified School District safety officers will be on campus Wednesday as a precaution.

The district and sheriff's investigators began an investigation late last month after a 14-year-old freshman student allegedly threatened to come to school on Halloween dressed as a serial killer.

Authorities say a teacher reported seeing the same student looking at a website pertaining to serial killers last Friday.

Detectives met with the suspect and his parents Monday night. Authorities say he was taken into custody on suspicion of interfering with an education institution.

The name of the student hasn't been released. The added security measures for Sabino High were announced Tuesday by sheriff's officials.
