A Moreno Valley middle school student was arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats after a playground dispute got out of hand, authorities said Thursday.
The incident occurred Wednesday during a physical education class at Vista Verde Middle School. Several black girls began taunting an Asian boy, who then threatened to get a gun and kill the girls, Riverside County sheriff's officials said. The girls reported the incident to school officials. Deputies took the suspect into custody Wednesday. Investigators searched the suspect's home but found no weapons.
