Paradise Police have arrested a 15-year-old boy who allegedly threatened to blow up Paradise High School and had a list of fellow students he wanted to kill.

According to police, officers responded to Paradise High School on September 29 when it was reported that a student was threatening to blow up the school. A 15-year-old student reportedly told fellow classmates he was going to plant a bomb on campus.

Police conducted a search of the school, but did not find any explosives, although a search of the 15-year-old revealed a list with names of students he wanted to kill.

The teenager admitted to writing the list and said he did so because he was being bullied, he also told police he had no intention of actually harming anyone.

During a follow-up investigation a second kill list was found, this one featuring some names that had not been on the first list.

The parents of the 15-year-old suspect were fully cooperative and told investigators their son did not have access to any weapons or the means to construct an explosive device.

Police arrested the boy for criminal threats and false report of a destructive device.

Authorities have contacted all of the students and parents of students named on the teenagers ‘kill lists'.
