An illegal immigrant was picked up by police after she made a threat against her high school on social media. “Rochester Police have arrested a 21-year-old student in the Rochester City School District after they said she made a credible threat against East High School,” WJLA reported. “Rochester Deputy Mayor Dr. Cedric Alexander and Deputy Chief La’Ron Singletary spoke at a news conference Friday afternoon.”
“According to Alexander, police were notified on February 16 about the threat being made against East High School. Staff within the Rochester City School District called police at 5:08 p.m about a threat posted on the East High School Facebook page. The threat said, ‘I’m coming tomorrow morning and I’m going to shoot all of ya b******.”
RPD Deputy Chief La’Ron Singletary said it took investigators days to arrest track down because she made the threats from a fictitious social media account. It took time for investigators to track down the person to whom the account belonged.
“When officers responded to the home of Abigail Hernandez on February 20, they said they found a shotgun inside the home.” ICE confirmed the woman’s immigration status but the school would not say why a 21-year old was enrolled there.
