The development comes after a 16-year-old student was arrested last week for making a threat to carry out a shooting at another high school 45 minutes east of the Division Avenue facility. 

The student, from Bellport High School in Brookhaven, New York, whose name is not being released because of his age, allegedly made a post on the “Bellport Scholars” Instagram page stating that there could be a mass shooting on Friday at the school, according to FOX 5.
