Thursday night, December 12, 2019, the Shoreline PD served an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) at the home of a 14 year old student who brought 200 rounds of ammunition to school on Monday.

Several rifles and handguns from the home were surrendered to police. All were locked in safes inside the house and registered to the teen's parents. The firearms were the same caliber as the ammunition that the involved students had in their possession on Monday.

This is not the first interaction police have had with this juvenile. There was a past incident with firing a weapon through a wall, that almost hit a neighbor; threats to obtain weapons and threats to harm.

That significant history is why the application for an extreme risk protection order was granted by a judge.

At this point, no criminal charges have been filed pertaining to this incident and we have not uncovered any specific threats towards the school or students.

Shoreline Police have been working closely with Shoreline Public School's administration, the Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety of the students.

KCSO conducted several thorough searches of the school and surrounding area, including South Woods, using five specially trained ammunition and explosives detection dogs. No additional ammunition or weapons were found.

The ammunition was discovered on Monday by school staff. Subsequent stories of threats and weapons were rumors. Kellogg Middle School was locked for a few minutes but was not otherwise involved.

Shorecrest High School was in lock down for several hours on Monday, then closed on Wednesday for the extended search. Nothing was found in either search.

The school district central office said "Please join us in extending our appreciation to all of our law enforcement partners and school staff for all they have done this week to investigate this matter and keep our school community safe."
