Following yesterday’s incident involving firecrackers being set-off on Mainland High School’s campus in Daytona Beach, the Daytona Beach Police Department received reports of a threat of a shooting at the High School, was planned for today. A release was sent out overnight that a heavy Police presence would be seen at the High School this morning, as investigations were underway to find out the suspect behind the threat. 


Around 8 a.m. today, Public Information Officer Messod Bendayan of DBPD confirmed that the suspect behind the threat was in custody. Two other suspects were also arrested following investigations from yesterday's incident.


It seems both incidents are linked as DBPD officials believe the firecrackers were set-off on campus yesterday as a test on the Department’s response time. Investigations are still underway and no further information has been released at this time.
