A shelter-in-place order at Evergreen Valley High School in San Jose was lifted this morning after a 15-year-old student suspected of making threats against the campus was located, according to San Jose police.

The student, who allegedly stated that he would "shoot-up" the school on a social media web site on Thursday night, is being detained and interviewed to determine if he will be charged with a crime, police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said. The teen was unarmed and did not resist officers, Dwyer said.

Police were alerted about the alleged threat Thursday night and were able to identify the student and search his residence, but did not locate any weapons or signs of a plan to attack the school.

The school was shut down around 9:30 a.m. today and students and staff were told to shelter in place after a staff member spotted someone he believed to be the student in question.
