Police probe threat of possible gun violence at South Pasadena High School

South Pasadena police are taking seriously a threat of potential gun violence at South Pasadena High School on Friday, but say the threat may not be credible.

On Thursday evening a South Pasadena High student reported a threat that possible gun violence could take place on campus Friday, the last day of classes before the winter break.

Police have looked into the tip, but Det. Richard Lee said in a statement Friday morning that police "lack any specific information that would suggest the threat is credible."
