Los Alamos police, acting on a tip from a concerned citizen, moved swiftly April 22 to head off a potentially deadly situation concerning Los Alamos High School.
After learning of the tip that day, Tuesday, police immediately went searching for the suspect, Devon Greene, 18, at his North Mesa residence, as well as the school. One of the officers did manage to contact Greene and Greene voluntarily started to make his way to the police station to explain his actions.
On their way to his residence, police met up with him, driving his car in the opposite direction. They stopped him, searched his person and his car, and after finding no weapons, allowed him to proceed to the police station in his own car under police escort.
Greene allegedly made the threats while at the school via text message. According to a text recovered from Greene’s phone, Greene allegedly said “I’m uncomfortable and … and wanna do a (expletive) shooting at the school ... I’m not in a (expletive) happy mood today.”
On April 22, Greene allegedly told witnesses “he wanted to go to the school, shoot up the place then kill himself.”
