Kendall School student and parents arrested after school threat

KENDALL, N.Y. (WHEC) – A 14-year-old Kendall School District student and his parents have been charged in connection with a school threat last week.

The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office has charged the student with making a terroristic threat. On May 25, the district reported a threat via social media. Deputies responded to the high school and detained the student. A search of the student, his locker and the school turned up nothing.

The investigation then turned to the student’s residence, where deputies say the parents were not forthcoming. Eventually several weapons, ammunition, and electronic equipment was seized. The parents were eventually charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

The child was sent to Strong Hospital for a mental hygiene evaluation and was eventually returned to his parents.
