A Rochester City School District student who also an undocumented immigrant was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat to people at East High School in Rochester, New York.
Two of the school's leadership, Deputy Mayor Cedric Alexander and Deputy Police Chief LaRon Singletary, held a news conference late Friday saying the investigation began on February 15 when Rochester Police were warned about a threat posted on the high school's Facebook page.
The threat left on the East High School Facebook page read, "I’m coming tomorrow morning, and I’m going to shoot all of ya bitches." Police arrested 21 Abigail Hernandez, both an undocumented immigrant and in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Hernandez was arrested on February 20th and handed over to federal authorities in Batavia. School officials confirmed Hernandez did not attend the high school she threatened but rather another school in the same district. Police recovered a shotgun at the woman's home and she is facing a felony for making a terroristic threat.
Alexander credited the quick response of several people for stopping the threat, "The country is on edge, and of course, everyone is on notice, and what was remarkable in this case, is that the police department, the school district, and the community worked collaboratively together to bring this potential threat to a halt."
