Torrey Pines HS Freshman Detained After Making Threats: SDPD

No weapons were found in the home of a Torrey Pines High School student who was detained Thursday after making threats to harm others, police said. 

The 14-year-old freshman was suspended from Torrey Pines High School Wednesday after he made verbal and written threats, San Diego Police Department (SDPD) Officer Joshua Hodge said. The police department was called to investigate. 

Thursday afternoon, police went to the student's home to question him, at which point it was determined that the student had made threats to commit a crime that could result in injury or death to others, Hodge said. 

The nature of the threat was not made clear. 

The teen was taken into custody and booked into San Diego Juvenile Hall Detention Facility.

SDPD said there was no further threat to the school.

On Friday, Lt. Paul Phillips confirmed officers had searched the teen's home which was located "not too far" from the high school. While Phillips declined to reveal the exact address, he said there were no weapons found at the home. 

The teenager's parents were cooperative, he added. 

Officers seized electronic devices from the home. 

At this point, Phillips said it appears that no one else was involved.
