If you remember today was the day that there was supposed to be an assault on Quartz Hill High before the suspects were arrested back in December. The date was chosen allegedly due to the Marilyn Manson song “Valentine’s Day”.
Still, security was beefed up with deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Lancaster Station and the California Highway Patrol and attendance was down by 30%.
Despite the arrests, rumors of an attack by associates of the suspects continued, Brown said, though he added that detectives have found nothing to substantiate the rumor.
“I want to assure parents of the students attending Quartz Hill High School that the district has done everything possible to make Feb. 14th a safe school day throughout the campuses of the Antelope Valley Union High School District,” Superintendent David Vierra said.
It’s past 5 pm PST now so I guess we can say the day went off without a hitch.
