A threat posted to Snapchat by Southern Connecticut State University student, Nicholas Graham, has led to his arrest, and increased police presence at Fairfield schools on Wednesday.
Police say they’ve arrested Graham after he allegedly made threats after getting into an argument on the social media platform, and that he would “find them and kill them, and all of their friends.”
The Snap threat led multiple concerned parents to contact police.
Police say that Graham told them he didn’t have any intention of hurting anyone, and that his posts were motivated by emotion and anger. Police say he was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center, evaluated, and remained in police custody. Graham was charged with breach of peace, threatening, and harassment. He’s scheduled to be in court on March 7th and is currently being held on a $20,000 bond. source
Police say at this time, there is no indication that Graham has the capacity to carry out the threats, however there will be an increase in police at the schools on Wednesday.
