A "Halloween Hit List" made by a student at Malibu High School that was the focus of an investigation concluded Tuesday, turned out to be a list of people he planned to "egg," the Sheriff's Department said.
The list was discovered Monday and did not include a specified threat, Principal Dave Jackson said in a letter to parents, but included student names. Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said the 13-year-old 7th grader had specifically named 15 students.
“We found the student and the list. We have taken appropriate school action, and the sheriff’s department is also involved,” Jackson wrote.
Sgt. John Skikas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Malibu station said Tuesday the student was not arrested and that deputies determined during the investigation that he posed no physical threat to stuents.
No weapons were found in the boy's home, and there was no evidence he planned to harm anyone.
The student is being monitored by his family and a juvenile team, Skikas said.
The student’s parents are cooperating, and the school administration believes the campus is safe. The student was suspended for five days.
