RED BLUFF, Calif. - A Red Bluff student was arrested after authorities said he told another student not to come to school on Monday because there might be a school shooting.

Just after 8 a.m. on Monday, the Red Bluff Police Department was alerted by staff at Red Bluff Union High School regarding suspicious comments made by a student. 

Authorities were told that 18-year-old Thomas Trotter told another student not to come to school on Monday because there might be a school shooting. 

Red Bluff police officers and investigators with the Tehama County District Attorney's Office arrived at the school and found Trotter in the library. 

He was in possession of a concealed survival-type knife. Authorities also searched his vehicle and found a billy club and another knife. 

Trotter was booked into Tehama County Jail on $83,000 bail. 

Authorities believe this is an isolated incident and no other students were involved. 

The school was not on lockdown for the incident, but several students were moved from the library while Trotter was being detained.
