SOMERS, N.Y. -- New York State Police from the Somers barracks are investigating an alleged threat made at John F. Kennedy Catholic High School.

State Police said they started the investigation after receiving a tip reporting a threat made on a social media platform.

The tip alleged that a 15-year-old juvenile had made statements on social media to harm others at the school, where he is a student.

Further investigation revealed that the threat, which was made several months ago, does not appear to be credible at this time. The case remains under investigation.

A State Police officer and canine will be on school grounds today to ensure the safety of the children. Additionally, Somers Police Department will also have a School Resource Officer at the school.
