An 18-year-old suspect will go before a judge this afternoon for allegedly making threats against Sammamish High School.  A Sammamish student reported receiving the threat on Friday morning, December 9th.

Bellevue police immediately responded to Sammamish High School, secured the building, and remained there throughout the day. Officers also provided patrols at the other Bellevue high schools as a precautionary measure.
