LOS ANGELES (KNX1070) - The fathers of two students who made threats to shoot up a pair of San Fernando Valley High Schools are now facing criminal charges filed by the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office for unsafe gun storage at their homes.

The investigations and the arrests came about according to L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer because of tips that came into school police in the last three weeks.

One student threatened to shoot up the Chatsworth Charter High Campus, the other made threats against a student at Granada Hills Charter High. Searches of the homes of the teens found a total of four handguns, all stored in unlocked containers with ammunition readily available. The fathers of both boys are now facing multiple charges of unsafe storage of firearms, which carry six month jail terms and fines if they are convicted. Criminal cases against the students are pending with the DA’s office. L.A. school police say they have conducted 75 investigations of school shooting threats since the Parkland, Fla. killings and will continue to seek prosecutions when warranted.
