Second suspect arrested for helping student thwart police investigation into threats at Napa schools


Another student at River Middle School has been taken into custody for allegedly helping another student thwart the police investigation into threats of school shootings in the Napa Unified School District. 

According to the Napa Police Department, the 13-year-old boy was taken into custody Thursday morning for two felony counts of Accessory After the Fact. 

Police say the suspect tried to hide evidence and interfered with witnesses related to the threat to the victim student. 

Police say it also appears that this suspect was trying to thwart the investigation into the school shooting threat. 

According to authorities, there is no direct evidence that the suspect was actively involved in the planning of violence towards others or that he was a threat to anyone. 

Napa PD has not found any further evidence or active threats toward any school or individual outside the 14-year-old student who was arrested on Jan. 2 and remains in custody.

The investigation is ongoing.
