Student Charged With Threatening Shooting At Hayes High School

Delaware police have arrested a Hayes High School student who allegedly made a threat that forced district officials to close the facility on Thursday. 

18-year-old Troy Ferguson was arrested after several other students reported he had threatened to carry out a school shooting. Ferguson claimed he was joking.  Police say they recovered a semi-automatic handgun, air-soft pistol, rope, a gas can, a wig and a fake beard from his car.  Ferguson is charged with inducing panic, and  he's currently being evaluated at a medical facility before a court date is scheduled.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
