South Pasadena police are crediting vigilant school officials for helping to foil a mass-shooting plot allegedly planned by two students whose arrests were announced Monday.
The students were arrested after detectives served search warrants at their homes, according to the South Pasadena Police Department.
One of the students resisted arrest, prompting officers to force their way into his home, according to police officials.
Officials did not elaborate on how the students' alleged plan was uncovered, or how they intended to carry it out. More information on the alleged plot was expected to be revealed at a news conference Tuesday.
Yantz said in a statement that psychologists and counselors will be at the school to support students and employees when classes start Thursday.
