Juvenile faces charges in connection with social media post
Schools in Mojave were closed on Friday after a threat on social media.
The threats apparently came after an altercation on a school campus
Bakersfield television station KBAK/KBFX reported that the Kern County Sheriff's Office reported that one student was involved in an altercation with two others and made threats.
That juvenile was later arrested.
Mojave Unified School District Supt. Aaron Haughton released a statement.
"Mojave Unified School District in coordination with Kern County Sheriff’s department is currently conducting an investigation into a threat of gun violence made by a student following an altercation at school. In response to this threat, two schools in the community of Mojave are closed for the day. We expect normal schedules to resume on Monday, March 12."
The schools are an elementary school and junior/senior high school.
The closure in Mojave came just two days after a threat in nearby California City.
