Teenage gun nut 'threatened to target teachers'
Mathew Ross had hundreds of rounds of rifle and shotgun ammo, hunting knives, swords, hatchets and crossbows at his home, Deputy Shaunna Ables of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department said.
The 18-year-old told deputies he wasn't getting respect from his teachers the Black Rock High School in Yucca Valley, she added.
During his interrogation Ross made statements that he intended to use the weapons and named three members of staff who he intended to target in the small town around 110 miles east of Los Angeles.
He was charged with making criminal threats and booked into the West Valley Detention Center, according to CBS Los Angeles.
