ANGOLA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A student is set to be charged after the student made a threat towards the Lake Shore Central School District, according to authorities.

A message from School Superintendent Dan Pacos says this was “due to a social media message that students brought to our attention.”

The social media post was allegedly made by a 15-year-old male student late Thursday and was brought to the attention of middle school staff on Friday morning. Authorities say the student does not live in the district. The name of the student will not be released, and the charges he will face are unclear.

The teen and his parents have been interviewed by police.

The shelter-in-place was lifted just before 12:30 p.m. According to Pacos, “it seems that there is not a credible threat.”

Elementary schools in the district carried their days on like normal while the shelter-in-place was happening. For the remainder of the day, only staff and students will be allowed to enter school buildings.

Through the end of the school day, and during the night’s basketball game, there will be an increased police presence.
