Police all over Wolmer's Boys School as social media threat is taken seriously

A high level investigative team has been probing a social media threat issued against students of Wolmer's Boys' School in Kingston. This follows the circulation of a voice note with threatening messages purported to be from a student at the school.

In the more than 10-minute long voice note, a boy can be heard expressing frustration over calling colleagues by phone but not receiving an answer.

He further complained about being "ostracized" and society putting him in "a box with sickos". In the long rant, he chided so-called "friends" who don't remember his name or his birthday, and ignore him when they see him on the road.

He then lists a number of names, before apparently issuing a violent threat against them.

Anxiety over the incident has been fueled by last week's mass killing at a Florida school. A former student opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, killing at least 17 people.

Police are urging individuals to desist from circulating the audio clip, as it may cause undue anxiety at this time.

In the meantime, the Police High Command is asking persons who may have information that can assist with the investigation to contact the Counter Terrrorism and Organised Crime Branch (CTOC) at 967-1389, 811, Crime Stop at 311 or by using the Stay Alert App to submit information.
