JAMESTOWN – A student from Chautauqua Lake School, one from BOCES, and one from Randolph Academy were each taken for mental health evaluations Friday after they allegedly made threats of violence to staff.
According to New York State Police names of the three local teenagers — a 15-year-old student of Ashville BOCES, a 17-year-old of Chautauqua Lake, and 16-year-old of Randolph Academy — were not released after they were taken for mental health evaluations under the state’s mental hygiene law.
Two of the students said they would bring guns to school in “copycat threats” following last week’s mass shooting in Florida.
According to the Post-Journal, the students were not arrested and are not facing charges at this time.
The schools went into lockouts on Friday as a precaution until the students were identified.
