Press Release - Juvenile Delinquency Charge From Romulus School Lock Down Incident

CR#

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

On March 29, 2018 at about 3:00pm, Seneca County Sheriff’s Investigators charged a thirteen year old juvenile with Juvenile Delinquency on a charge of Making a Terrorist Threat, a Class D Felony if the Juvenile had been an adult. It is alleged that the juvenile made threats of firearm violence to the Romulus Central School District through social media. The information was brought to the attention of the District’s School Resource Officer on March 26th and an investigation was immediately launched.  Initially, the juvenile’s whereabouts were unknown which prompted a brief lockdown at the school.  The juvenile was located a short time later by Sheriff’s Deputies and was taken into custody and referred to mental health services.  At the time, it was confirmed that the juvenile was not at the school and it does not appear that there was a credible safety issue for the school or any of the occupants. The juvenile was issued an appearance ticket and will appear in Seneca County Family Court at a later date.  Since the incident, extra Sheriff Deputies have been present at the School in an effort to put students and faculty at ease.  Due to the age of the juvenile, the identity cannot be disclosed and the case must be handled in Family Court.

 The investigation was a joint effort between the Sheriff’s Office, Romulus Central School District, and Seneca County Community Counseling.
