As police work to keep Fresno off of a growing list of cities associated with school shootings, they're stressing the dangers of fake threats.

FRESNO, Calif. -- An arrest has been made after a man made several school shooting threats in Monday, Fresno police said.

The suspect, 23-year-old Jose Luis Castaneda, allegedly attempted to conceal his identity and phone information when making threats of a campus shooting at Edison High School, Fresno High School and Bullard High School.

Detectives were able to identify Castaneda as the suspect, and was taken into custody at an apartment complex in the area of Dakota Avenue and Hughes Avenue.
