Julian Edelman takes action to prevent another potential school shooting

Julian Edelman takes action to prevent another potential school shooting

The report details how late in March, an astute and ultimately heroic Instagram user direct messaged Edelman to suggest that he contact authorities in relation to another user who'd left a message in his comment thread in which he said he planned to "shoot my school up" and to "watch the news".

"Thankfully, this kid said something", Edelman said.

Edelman notified his assistant, and after Shannon Moen scanned the comments and alerted authorities in Boston, the 14-year-old boy was soon arrested at his mother's house in MI, where two of her rifles were discovered. When the police arrived at the address, they found a 14-year-old boy, who, they said, admitted to posting the threat.

It was a little more than a month after 17 people were shot to death a school in Parkland, Florida, which made Edelman take the threat seriously.

Edelman's assistant, Shannen Moen, called the police, who traced the comment to a teenager who lives in Port Huron, Michigan, using a records request for his email and IP address.

The student who alerted Edelman says he was not sure if his message would be seen.

"With the emotions of what happened, and I have a kid now, I said, 'Holy Toledo, what is going on?'" Edelman said. Port Huron detectives credited Edelman with bringing the threat forward. He was arrested and charged with making a false report of a threat of terrorism, a four-year felony in MI. When police searched the house, they discovered two rifles belonging to the boy's mother. This story evolves around this disturbing comment someone typed on one of Edelman's Instagram posts.

The boy was taken into custody and charged with "making a false report of a threat of terrorism" which is a felony that holds up to a four-year punishment in jail. "He's the real hero".
