Deputies received reports of four students with what appeared to be gunshot wounds Friday afternoon, which prompted a “swatting call,” which resulted in a significant police presence at Saugus High School. The Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station received the call at 1:45 pm, and they headed straight to the school at 21900 Centurion Way.
When deputies scoured the school, they turned up no victims, no shooting-related evidence, and no credible threats. By 2:30 pm, the all-clear was given. SkyFOX captured images of parents congregating at the school and many patrol cars parked nearby. They escorted the students to safety.
The sheriff’s office reports that numerous towns in the county appear to be receiving identical calls, which are thought to be “swatting calls.” Santa Clarita contains the neighborhood of Saugus. Three students, including the gunman, lost their lives in a campus shooting in November 2019.
