ORLANDO, Fla. - Hundreds of Orange County parents received an automated call Monday about students making threats online against other high school students.
"Are you glad someone took it seriously and called about it?" Belich asked Timber Creek student Charis Saceda.
"Yeah, I don't want to get shot at. I'm only a freshman. I have three more years before I graduate. I want to live my life," said Saceda, whose mother allowed her to be interviewed by Belich.
According to investigators, a student who heard talk of a threat against a group of students passed it along and Timber Creek's principal, Dr. Gabriel Berrio, sent out the automated call to parents.
"This weekend we received a report from law enforcement, along with tips from parents, that a student posted threats online against other students to be carried out today," said Berrio in the call.
"The investigator went to the student's home. The student immediately cooperated and so did the parents, who had firearms in the home. As part of the investigation the firearms were turned over to us," said Jane Watrel with the Sheriff's Office.
Investigators said the second student in the case was also cooperative.
WFTV has learned that the two students involved are getting treatment under the state's Baker Act, which authorizes a mental health evaluation for those who show indications of violent intentions and mental illness.
