A 14-year-old student at Poway High School in northern San Diego County has been arrested on a charge of threatening to bring guns to campus to kill another student, the Sheriff's Department said Friday.

The student who was the target of the verbal death threat notified his mother, who then called the principal. Within hours the 14-year-old, a freshman, had been arrested at his home and booked into Juvenile Hall, authorities said.

The 14-year-old had no access to firearms and no one else was believed involved in the threats, said Sgt. Chad Boudreau. The case will be submitted to the district attorney for review.
