A 17-year-old Dublin Coffman High School student was charged with first-degree misdemeanor counts of aggravated menacing and making false alarms Feb. 27.
According to Dublin police reports, an anonymous tip called in to the Dublin City School District’s helpline indicated the boy had made comments about shooting other students.
Dublin police investigated the allegation and determined there was not an immediate threat and no Dublin students or schools were in danger.
However, through interviews with various witnesses, police determined they had sufficient evidence that the teen had threatened others with physical harm, according to reports.
Police and school district officials said they appreciated the help of those who reported the threats and provided additional information that assisted the investigation.
The officials encouraged anyone with information to report threats or other criminal acts to Dublin police by calling 614-889-1112; or by going online at www.DublinOhioUSA.gov/police.
The school district’s anonymous helpline allows students and the public to report tips on any subject, including threats. The number is 1-866-LISTEN-2-ME.
