Exeter Police Arrest Teen in Technical School Threat


  Police in New Hampshire say they have arrested a 16-year-old in connection with a threat made toward a regional technical school.

Authorities say an administrator at the Seacoast School of Technology on Thursday reported that a student had told friends he was "going to shoot up the school."

But his threat was not directed at any specific students, teachers or faculty.

Police say the student in question will not be attending school while the investigation is ongoing.

Exeter police said the juvenile from Hampton turned himself into authorities Friday and was released pending a court date in the Brentwood Family Court.

The school serves high school students from Epping, Exeter, Newmarket, Raymond, Sanborn Regional and Winnacunnet high schools.
