A 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy were arrested after threatening to shoot up Westridge Middle School on Tuesday, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said. Investigators said Collisa Myrie and Cicero Williams face felony charges of written threats to kill. 'Yesterday, she sent numerous text messages to a Westridge Middle School faculty member saying she was going to shoot up the school,' the agency said in a tweet Wednesday. 'We take these threats very seriously regardless of actual intent.' According to the Sheriff's Office, a school resource officer received notice from a staff member at the school that the employee had received a text message threatening violence at the schools. 'The first message came in saying the violence to the school was going to be done the following day, so it was going to be done tomorrow,' an official said. The faculty member received another text 10 minutes later that said violence toward the school was imminent, deputies said. Skywitness video showed at least 10 cruisers cars at the school and multiple deputies with rifles searching the school in response to the threat. Staff members and faculty were evacuated so deputies could check the campus before deeming the building was safe. School was already dismissed by the time the texts were sent.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday walked out of a planned meeting to discuss infrastructure issues with Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, amid frustrations over ongoing investigations into his presidential campaign and administration. >> Read more trending news Trump walked out of the meeting after three minutes, opting instead to hold a news conference in the Rose Garden. >> From Cox Media Group's Jamie Dupree: Trump tells Dems - no legislating until investigations are stopped “I walked into the room and I told Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, ‘I want to do infrastructure, I want to do it more than you want to do it,’” he said. “‘But you know what, you can’t do it under these circumstances, so get these phony investigations over with.’” Democrats said the walkout seemed scripted. Pelosi called it all 'very, very, very strange' and said she was praying for Trump and the nation. The meeting at the White House had been set weeks ago, after Trump and the Democratic leaders agreed to talk further about a possible $2 trillion infrastructure proposal. Trump was due to provide the Democrats his ideas on how to pay for it. Schumer said when Trump 'was forced to say how he would pay for it he had to run away.' >> From Cox Media Group's Jamie Dupree: Pelosi accuses Trump of being 'engaged in a cover-up' Earlier Wednesday, after a closed-door hearing with Democrats, Pelosi accused Trump of being “engaged in a cover-up” aimed at blocking oversight related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and its possible ties to Trump and his campaign officials. Mueller completed his probe last month after 22 months of investigation. In a report released earlier this month, Mueller said his team found no evidence that Trump or his campaign officials colluded with Russia to win the election. He did not, however, make a determination around whether Trump obstructed justice in connection to the investigation. >> More on Robert Mueller's investigation Trump has denied all wrongdoing and consistently framed Mueller’s investigation as an expensive and politically motivated “witch hunt” aimed at hurting his presidency.
