Rosemead High School is closing after ‘vague’ threat over ‘RHS’, officials say

ROSEMEAD, Calif. (KABC) – An online threat to a school identified only as “RHS” led to the closure of Rosemead High School Friday and possibly other schools across the country.

Local authorities say they closed Rosemead High School out of caution and no indication the threat was specifically aimed at that campus.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigators believe the threat may have originated in Raymondville, Texas. According to media reports, a student was arrested there on Thursday because of threats of guilt.

However, a handful of other schools across the country with the RHS initials are also taking precautions.

The threat is said to have originated from a Snapchat account, but the content of the threat was “vague”, prompting the response of several schools with the initial “RHS” in the country to investigate.

The suspect threatened to shoot “RHS” and the post went viral, according to local authorities.

Additionally, Rosemead High was reportedly vandalized overnight. It was unclear if the vandalism and social media threat were related.

Several Los Angeles sheriffs and police departments are investigating the threats.
