Student arrested, accused of making ‘serious’ threats at Concord-Carlisle H.S.

CONCORD, MA (WHDH) - A Concord-Carlisle High School student was arrested Wednesday after making “serious threats,” officials said.

School officials were notified that a student had written threats against members of the school community, according to Superintendent Diana Rigby. Police said the student had an outburst in a classroom and was later found to have written “serious and specific threats” against fellow students and staff in a notebook. Police said the student named people specifically in his threats and referenced using firearms.

Rigby said the student was immediately removed from the school for a mental health evaluation. The student was arrested and Rigby said “he will not return” to the school.

Police said the 17-year-old student was charged with threatening to use deadly weapons in a school and threatening to commit a crime. In a release, police said no weapons were found. An “increased police presence” is expected at the school.

The student was arraigned at Framingham Juvenile Court.
