Officials comment on IVC threats

(Assistance available to IVC students)….School officials said Thursday counselors and a crisis team was available to students.

Imperial Valley College Officials made the comments Thursday. They said classes went on as planned Thursday because they felt the campus was safe, following the violent social media threats Wednesday. An 18 year old suspect was arrested in the incident. Raymond Martinez of Calexico reportedly admitted to posting the threats on Facebook. Sheriff’s officials say they have found no evidence Martinez planned to carry-out his threats. Investigators say it does not appear the 18 year old had any weapons, nor does it appear he had access to any weapons. They said, however, the investigation is continuing. Martinez was booked into County Jail, charged with making terrorist threats.
