15-year-old questioned after Facebook threat in Chautauqua County

SHERMAN – An hour-long lockout Friday morning at Sherman Central School was linked to a social media threat, reported State Police.

"We had a couple of sources telling us about a threatening Facebook post," said Superintendent Michael Ginestre.

"It was also determined that the person making the threat made some comments to students," Ginestre said. "We determined the threat was external, and posed no threats to students."

A lockout was imposed from 8:20 to 9:20 a.m., Ginestre said. The threat, contained in a post on Facebook, was reportedly made by a 15-year-old boy, said State Police.

The 15-year-old was questioned by troopers.

No further information was immediately available.

Sherman Central School is in Chautauqua County 30 miles of Jamestown. It serves 440 students in prekindergarten through high school.
