POWAY, Calif. (AP) - The parents of a 12-year-old San Diego County boy have apologized for his reported threat to kill two dozen people at his school.
They also say he had no intention of carrying out the threat.
The boy attends Twin Peaks Middle School in Poway. He was arrested Saturday after allegedly sending the school principal an email threatening to shoot a teacher and 23 students.
Investigators seized 11 guns at the boy's home but authorities say all were locked away and he couldn't have accessed them.
U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/157OQf6) says the family issued a statement Monday that said the boy is dealing with emotional problems and also coping as one parent battles cancer
His name hasn't been released. He could be charged with making a terrorist threat.
