SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Police identified the student who wrote a threatening message in a San Luis Obispo High School restroom as part of a trend on TikTok.

Investigators say a 14-year-yorld wrote the message “Don’t come Dec 6th, School Shooting” late last month.

Police add that one of the student’s friends knew that it happened.

Officers are not releasing the names of the students because they are minors.

No one was arrested.

The student’s parents were notified about the incident.

Police say the students involved in the incident will be dealt with by the school district.

Officers add that the message was written to support a meme on the social media app TikTok.

Videos on the app have been urging teens to skip school during the week of December 2nd- 6th.

A similar threat was investigated at Laguna Middle School last month.

The school district sent out a message to San Luis Obispo High School parents saying, “Parents, students and staff members, The safety of our students and staff is our top priority, thus we take all threats very seriously. We have concluded our investigation regarding the threatening graffiti and vandalism in the bathroom on November 21st. The students responsible for writing the message on a bathroom wall prior to Thanksgiving break have confessed to writing it as a prank. They were copying what they heard happened at Laguna Middle School, but with a different date. A threat assessment was conducted by a San Luis Coastal Unified School District psychologist and administration on the students involved. The district psychologist and administration determined there is no evidence to suggest that the students intended to act upon the threat. The students showed remorse for their actions including the pain and trauma that it caused other students, staff, and community members. San Luis Obispo High School, along with the support of our district office, will move forward with appropriate student disciplinary measures. We appreciate the collaborative work done by SLOPD alongside our site and district staff. SLOPD will release a statement later today. We value the openness of our students, staff, and parents in bringing matters to our attention. We consider it an honor to work with each of your students each day.”
