A student, just 15 years old, at Millikan High School in Long Beach who was allegedly overheard making a threat has been arrested. A student at Wilson High, 16, was picked up for the same thing. The incidents remain under active investigation and police plan to maintain increased patrols around all city high schools. There was a third threat in Long Beach over the past few days, police say it was not credible.
