A school janitor accused of threatening to shoot up a school has been ordered to stay away from all San Marcos Unified School District facilities for the next three years.
Team 10 broke the story last month.
52-year-old David Goosen’s lawyer appeared on his behalf Friday afternoon when the restraining order was finalized.
Goosen must stay at least 100 yards away from district property and away from five specific district employees.
“The district is pleased and satisfied,” said Henry Voros, the assistant superintendent of the district.
Documents show it all began with a missing mop and escalated from there.

The documents say Goosen made threats of violence, referenced school shootings, and repeatedly followed a fellow janitor home. In 2006, the documents state, he allegedly punched and broke a school fire alarm while working at another district campus.
Goosen did not return a call for comment Tuesday. Court records do not list an attorney representing him.
The district declined to comment on the specifics of the investigation, saying it was ongoing and confidential.
In court documents filed April 27, the district said Goosen “has become increasingly defiant in the face of authority, cannot control his temper, is unpredictable, and makes a conscious effort to threaten and intimidate his co-workers.”
The temporary restraining order is good until June 13, at which time the district will ask the judge to extend it to an as yet unspecified date.
The document says the latest incident involving Goosen occurred on April 6, when he allegedly threw a mop after discovering his preferred mop was missing. He was put on on paid administrative leave on April 20.
San Marcos sheriff’s deputies looked into the April 6 mop incident but found no criminal wrongdoing, a sheriff’s captain said Tuesday.
According to court records, the restraining order was sought after a school official reviewed Goosen’s personnel file and discovered a history of problems.
Those included an incident in May 2013, when district officials say Goosen kicked an Alvin Dunn Elementary School student for not sitting properly in the lunch room.
