MCSO Releases Statement After Threats Posted On SnapChat

Written by on October 27, 2021

After Penfield’s Superintendent sent an email to parents regarding posts on Snapchat MCSO releases a statement on the threats.

The posts say:  “I needed a new account to make this, me and my friends have gotten bullied for too long and we can’t take it no more.  October 26th, Tuesday at [times vary], we will be shooting up [schools vary].  We plan on shooting 10 administrators and 50-70 kids….”

The district sent the threats to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Here is the statement from the MCSO on the posts that are apparently being made across the country.


“The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office has been made aware of the “threat” circulating on Social Media across the nation. At this time, MCSO and the Monroe Crime Analysis Center (MCAC) have not identified any credible threats anywhere. MCAC is assessing the Snap Chat threats and has learned the school threats have shown up in multiple schools in other areas in New York State and the rest of the nation using very similar language. MCAC will continue looking into numerous complaints of this nature throughout the U.S., analyzing the information, and remain in contact with the FBI and New York State Police. 


“That being said, MCSO has been in communication and in coordination with our local police agencies and none has been informed of any threats. We will continue to share information with law enforcement leaders as new information is developed. We are working with local school districts to provide high visibility special attention details at the schools.


“As always, if you see something say something and call 911. MCSO will continue to follow up on any information provided. We will also continue to maintain open communication with our local school district”
