HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Monroe County Sheriff's Office charged a Rush-Henrietta High School student with making a terroristic threat Wednesday following an investigation into a "concerning social media post."

Deputies say 19-year-old Shamire Broyld made a threat on social media alleging he had thoughts of shooting up the school.

Deputies say they were made aware of the post just after 10 p.m. Tuesday. 

Deputies responded to the student's home to conduct an investigation that included conversations with the student's family. The student was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for evaluation.

The student did not go to school on Wednesday. The Rush-Henrietta School District sent out a robocall Wednesday morning to staff and families of students in grades 10-12.

However, in no time were students, faculty or staff believed to be in any danger. 

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office has a presence at the Rush-Henrietta High School and Webster Learning Center campuses.

Broyld is being held in the Monroe County Jail on bail.
