SEABROOK — A 14-year-old Seabrook Middle School student has been arrested after police say he threatened to “shoot up” the school.
“Though the investigation remains open, Seabrook police feel confident that at no time were the students or faculty in danger,” acting Police Chief Brett Walker said in a news release Wednesday.
Police said they worked closely with faculty and Seabrook Police Department School Resource Officer Keith Dietenhofer to investigate the Sept. 14 threat.
“This investigation shows the importance of ‘see something, say something,’” Walker said in a statement. “We are extremely proud of the witnesses for coming forward to report this and ensure that the school and the police were able to address the issue immediately.”
The teen, who police did not identify, was charged with one count of criminal threatening and will appear in Portsmouth District Court at a later date.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Detective Keith Dietenhofer or Detective Sgt. Dan Lawrence at the Seabrook Police Department at 603-474-5200.
