Authorities arrested a middle school student who was allegedly planning several mass shootings at Northern California schools.

The arrest has been disclosed in a statement on Monday in which the NAPA Police Department said that it had thwarted potential shootings during winter break. The targeted schools were River Middle School and Vintage High School in Napa.

On Dec. 31, a student told authorities that his 14-year-old classmate had been planning an attack and gave them evidence about the plot. He also said that the suspect was threatening to kill him if he reported his plans to police.

The suspect was arrested on Jan.2 after searching two homes in NAPA, where officers retrieved further evidence related to the planning and research of a mass shooting incident.
