DETAILS: On 3/12/2014, at about 2:20 pm, Oxnard Police Department officers were dispatched to a call of a student who had made a threat towards other students at Oceanview Junior High.

 
The threat came in the form of a video recording where the student had a gun and was shown to manipulate the magazine. In this recording, the student threatened to kill two other students and members of his family. 
 
The video recording was emailed to another student, who did the right and responsible thing by informing school administration.
 
Since the minor making the threats as well as two would-be-victims were all students, the school was placed on lockdown. Officers responded immediately, and school resource officers were able to make contact with the students. 
 
It was determined that the students were all friends and had made the video together. Also, the gun shown, turned out to be an air-soft replica gun. There did not appear to be any other threat.
 
For students and schools, incidents like this can disrupt the learning environment. For parents, families, and our community, it brings an unnecessary worry.
 
The Oxnard Police remind parents and all residents of the danger that replica firearms are a hazard to public safety when brandished or used in a threatening manner.
Consequently, as in this case, it can deplete our immediate resources, and cost the city and our Department valuable time and resources, as well as our ability to respond to other incidents in the city. 

DATE / TIME PREPARED:  March 12, 2014, 6:30 pm
