Written by WBTA STAFF on February 20, 2018
An unnamed BOCES student is currently undergoing a mental health evaluation in Buffalo after allegations that he made threats of violence at the Batavia campus.
What the student said or wrote, if anything, remains unclear, however initial investigation has characterized the threats as vague without specific reference to how the student would actually carry out the alleged acts.
Batavia’s Superintendent Chris Daily confirmed he notified local law enforcement after being made aware of the threats.
The name of the student is not being released and he has not currently been charged.
Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster said that the student will be charged if there is enough evidence that he committed a crime.
Brewster said local law enforcement takes these kinds of threats seriously and they will act on them.
