Salesian student charged with making terror threats

NEW ROCHELLE -

A Salesian High School student is under arrest for threatening to "shoot-up" his high school, according to police.

The New Rochelle District Attorney’s Office says the student is being charged with making terroristic threats, which is a felony.

Officials at the school say a student was removed from school earlier this week after saying he wanted to come to the campus and kill people. Parents and students were first notified about the issue Wednesday in a letter that was sent out by the principal and president of the school.

They say they received even more threats and decided to close the school Thursday and today as a precaution.
New Rochelle police say they don't believe the threat was credible and that the student does not have access to weapons.
