SOUTH WINDSOR – Police made an arrest on Saturday over the social media threat against South Windsor High School.
Police were investigating a threat to “shoot South Windsor High School” which was posted on social media on Friday.
The threat was made on the Snapchat platform late at night, as people around the world were still learning details of a horrific mass shooting in New Zealand. The poster claimed they would carry out the threat on Monday.
Police said during the investigation they found the threat not credible and the minor in question did not have access to weapons.
The suspect is not a current high school student.
The juvenile has been charged with first degree threat and has been transported to Hartford Juvenile Detention Center where he awaits trial next week.
The Superintendent of South Windsor School confirmed in an email on Saturday that “… the police will be more present at the high school next week to reassure students, families and staff. As always, school staff, especially counselors, school psychologists and social workers will be ready to support your children when they return to school on Monday.
