Sacramento, CA | Let’s call it like it is, good police work may have preempted a tragedy at a Sacramento school.

Per documented radio traffic, a BOLO (Be On The Look Out) for “officer safety” was broadcast to all officers in the Sacramento region Thursday for a subject who heard he was being fired from his job at California Middle School.

The broadcast further stated that the subject had two guns registered to him and was said to be in route to the school via Lightrail and may be armed.

Officers in marked and unmarked cars staged in the area hoping to locate, intercept and detain the subject said to be wearing a camouflage hat and carrying a backpack.

California middle school was placed on modified lockdown.

Officers found 52-year-old Treymal Addison in the 2900 block of Freeport Blvd.  A weapon was found in Addison possession and he was charged with possession of the weapon. Addison was described as being distraught.

The school was placed on modified lockdown, however the students’ day was not interrupted.

While there was no shooting and the subject was intercepted and detained, there is no telling what may have happened had Addison actually reached the school grounds. He was apprehended just blocks away from the school and never made got on school grounds Thursday.
