A person is in custody in connection with a reported threat to Camden Central Schools, State Police say.
Around 2 a.m., Oswego Police were made aware of a person who had indicated that he planned a school shooting at an unidentified school in the Camden School District.
22-year-old Bradley Davis was charged for making a terroristic threat, a felony.
The district closed on Monday when a suspect hadn’t been taken into custody by 5:15 a.m.
“We consulted with the Camden Police Chief who contacted the Superintendent of Schools and classes are cancelled today,” said Trooper Jack Keller, NYSP. “[The] superintendent requested that troopers be stationed at the district offices as we continue to investigate.”
Davis was located at a friend’s home in the city of Oneida.
An investigation revealed that he allegedly sent the alarming messages to more than one person via Facebook Messenger.
At the time of his arrest, Davis did not have any access to weapons.
It does not appear that there had been any ongoing planning for the event, but rather Davis was upset the night before about a personal issue.
Davis left the school district in 2012.
He was sent to the Oneida County Jail where he awaits arraignment.
