SAN RAMON, Calif. (KGO) — The California High School community remains on high alert after another message was discovered on-campus, threatening a May 9 school shooting.
The message found in a boys restroom at Cal High details when, where and who would be targeted in the shooting. The threat also used a racial slur to call out African Americans. “It may not just be tomorrow, and that’s the scarier part,” the parent added. He has two sons at Cal High, a graduating senior and a 10th grader.
He too has worries about his children being targeted, “I can see it specifically targeting Latinos, Mexicans, Indians, Asians. It could be anybody!”
The Cal High community remains on high alert.
“Unfortunately, that’s a terrible conversation to have with your child. This is a time when they’re finishing their school year, they’re getting ready to graduate,” the parent said. “Oh yeah, and by the way, ‘You also got to be careful because there might be a shooting tomorrow.'”
Parents admit concern will last far beyond May 9.
Birur said, “One thing my daughter said very cleverly is, ‘Mommy, they may be putting off. They may be saying May 9th and they show up on May 10th.’ So, what do you do for those things?”
