The restraining order against the former El Camino College student that threatened to create a massacre on campus in 2014 has recently been renewed.

EC was granted two permanent restraining orders in 2014, against James Lemus, for the explicit threats he made towards the EC community.

EC Chief of Police Michael Trevis said the criteria for deciding to renew the restraining order was if people at EC were still afraid of Lemus and “there are some people here on campus that are still afraid.”

Trevis said that because Lemus did not appear in court, the judge ruled in favor of EC.

Trevis added that Lemus has not tried to contact anyone at EC and has not been on campus.

“He has moved on with his life, I can tell you that and from what I’ve been told, he’s doing very well, he’s just moved on,” Trevis said.

Update Wednesday, Oct. 24, 10:44 p.m., file photo of Lemus was included into the story.
