A 15-year-old California boy was arrested Sunday in connection with threats of attacks against high schools near Los Angeles posted on social media, law enforcement officials said. The teen, who was not identified, was taken into custody at his home in the Santa Clarita Valley, about 35 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, less than a day after the threats were posted on the photo-sharing site Instagram, according to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station. Dozens of worried residents had informed law enforcement about the posts, which promised a "huge" shooting at local high schools in the region, the sheriff's office said. The posts, which have since been deleted, also included photos of guns, dead bodies and threats against women and minorities, Lieutenant Brenda Cambra of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Sunday.
