Niagara County Sheriff Michael J. Filicetti announced the arrest of a Starpoint Middle School student.
On Sunday, the Niagara County Sheriff's Office received a report of a photograph that was sent via Snapchat indicating possible violence at the school. After an investigation by the NCSO criminal investigation bureau, a juvenile student was charged with one count of making a terroristic threat (a D felony).
The juvenile was released to the custody of his parents and given a future date to appear at Niagara County Probation. He is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
“Starpoint school officials worked cooperatively with our agency to ensure the safety of all students,” Filicetti said on Monday. "We will continue to investigate all school threats and take the appropriate action."
