Threatening 'copycat' graffiti found at Cal High in San Ramon

SAN RAMON (KRON) — School officials at California High School in San Ramon found more graffiti on the campus Thursday — this time, making racist remarks and referencing another school shooting. 

Today’s incident comes after several other instances of graffiti this month that made threats of violence toward the campus, specifically a shooting on May 9. 

San Ramon police as well as the FBI were present on the campus last week because of the threats. 

The high school’s principal issued a letter to the campus today, saying they’ve identified and disciplined the students they believe are responsible for the graffiti found on a shack near the football field on May 3. 

The grafitti found Thursday is a ‘copycat,’ according to the principal, and referenced a shooting on Thursday, May 27 in addition to making racist remarks. Campus officials reiterate that May 27 is a Monday, not a Thursday and that school will not be in session that day. 

The principal says police are investigating the threat, but believe it is not credible. 

The person(s) behind the latest threat will face disciplinary action, the principal said, and possibly criminal charges. 

School officials say they will installing security cameras on the campus and continue to have police presence on and near the campus. 

Anyone with information on the latest threat are asked to contact Cal High Principal Christopher George at (925) 803-3210
