Portland police arrested an 18-year-old Cleveland High School student Tuesday morning for bringing bullets to the school.
Shayne Austin Mejia, also known as Shayne Charette, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on one count of disorderly conduct in the first degree.
According to police, at about 8:30 a.m., officers from the Youth Services Division responded to the school in Southeast Portland on a report that Mejia was threatening to bring a gun to school. They learned that Mejia made statements to other students about bringing a gun to school to threaten someone.
Officers waited for Mejia to arrive and then contacted him. Officers found ammunition in his possession but no firearm. A search of the school grounds did not turn a firearm, either.
