Villanueva said deputies who conducted a search of the boy's home seized an AR-15 rifle, approximately 100 rounds of ammunition, a list of people who are suspected to have been targets, and a drawing of the school's layout. The suspect allegedly had silencers and body armor.

On November 14th a 16-year-old boy used an unregistered gun to fatally shoot two classmates at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, just . Three other students were wounded in that shooting before the gunman shot himself with a 45-caliber semi-automatic handgun. He died later in the hospital.
