A student accused of threatening to shoot classmates and staff at a school in South L.A. has been arrested after being found to have an AR-15 rifle and ammunition, authorities said Friday.
The subject also had in his possession a rudimentary hand-drawn map of the school as well as a list containing names of both students and staff members from the school.

It remains to be seen what will happen next, and how Nunes's lawsuit will come together. Nunes said the news outlets "will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving".
The 13-year-old's alleged threats came to light when other students overheard him talking about gunning down his schoolmates, according to police.
Investigators were trying to determine who owns the gun that authorities initially called a ghost gun - a weapon without a serial number made from parts from other guns. The student had been involved in a campus fight and later posted threats and a photo of a person holding a firearm, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said this morning.
The gun is unregistered, the sheriff said at a news conference on Friday.

The boy was arrested without incident on suspicion of making criminal threats. He was being held in lieu of $35,000 bail, but his name had not been released.
Villanueva said deputies who conducted a search of the boy's home seized an AR-15 rifle, approximately 100 rounds of ammunition, a list of people who are suspected to have been targets, and a drawing of the school's layout. School officials immediately notified the sheriff's department. No weapon was obtained in the case. Villanueva later clarified the weapon has a serial number.
