Medina Student Arrested, Charged in Threats



(WBEN) A Medina High School student is under arrest, charged with making threats to harm other students.
 
Mackenzie Barrett, 18,  was arrested and charged with making a terrorist threat.    

He was also suspended from school, and superintendent Jeffery Evoy posted a note to parents on the school's website, saying -in part-  that the school was advised of the threat late Friday evening, and that the "district will continue to cooperate with the law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety and security of all students and staff."


Here's the message Medina School Supt. Jeffrey Evoy sent to parents:
 
Dear Parents,

Late Friday evening, I was advised of an alleged threat made by a current Medina High School student regarding the individual’s plans to harm other Medina High School students at school on Monday.  Upon learning of the alleged threat, District officials immediately contacted the Medina Police Department.  It is my understanding that a criminal investigation remains on-going.  The District has suspended the student from school and is moving forward with a discipline proceeding regarding the alleged conduct.  To protect the integrity of the investigation and proceeding, the District cannot provide further comment at this time.

The Medina Central School District will continue to cooperate with the law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety and security of all students and staff.  Please know that the safety of students and staff is our number one priority.  Any threats will be dealt with in a serious manner. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 798-2700.
 
Thank you for your ongoing support.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jeffrey Evoy
