Patriots receiver Julian Edelman may have thwarted MI school shooting

They alerted MI police who then arrived at the address and found a 14-year-old boy who admitted to posting the threatening comment.

A story in the New York Times detailed what happened next, which led to a teenager in MI being jailed.

This whole saga reportedly took place last month, while Edelman was visiting former Patriots teammate Danny Amendola in Texas. The 14-year-old admitted that he left the threatening message, and officers found a pair of rifles in the home, per Belson.

This comment was left on Julian Edelman's Instagram page.

After being notified by detectives, MI police immediately went to the house, where they found a 14-year-old boy who confessed to posting the threat.

It is believed the boy's threat was directed at his middle school.


A college student who tipped off Edelman tells 7News that he noticed the comment, which said: "I'm going to shoot my school up watch the news". After detectives made an emergency records request for account information, they used the email and IP address to trace the post to Port Huron, Mich. The boy has had one court hearing so far and remains in the detention center.

"When I told Julian, he was in shock", Shannen said of the situation.

"Thankfully, this kid said something".

In response to questions about the disturbing posting on Edelman's account, Boston Police Department spokeswoman Maisha Miraj would neither confirm nor deny who was involved, but said, "We were alerted to a post".

The boy was taken into custody and charged with "making a false report of a threat of terrorism" which is a felony that holds up to a four-year punishment in jail.

Edelman said he plans to send a care package to the person who informed him of the threatening message.
