Camden Schools Closed – Police Called to School for ‘Suspicious Activity’
UPDATE: Police have arrested 22 year-old Bradley Davis Jr, a former Camden student for 'making terroristic threats.'
Camden schools are closed today and it has nothing to do with the weather. Parents received a call from Superintendent Jeffrey Bryant "that school was closed due to an administrative directive and more details will follow later." A notice on the Camden school website says "no students or staff should report."
New York State Police were called to the school around 4:30am. The 911 call logs show a report of 'suspicious activity.'
State Police PIO Jack Keller tells WIBX "a threat of school violence was posted on Facebook 'at a non-specific school building' early Monday morning. State Police consulted with Camden Police and the school superintendent, who made the decision to close schools today."
State Police have also been asked to have a presence at the Camden School District Offices as the investigation continues.
Parents of Camden high school students recently received a letter about gun threats. The letter stated the gun threat was made Monday, February 12th and police were called in. An interview with the student revealed "there was no credible threat towards any person. Consequences have been assigned to the student."
