EASTHAMPTON, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

A student at an Easthampton school will be out of class following a reported threat Tuesday.

Easthampton Police Officer Chad Alexander said that on Tuesday, a 17-year-old male student made a threat that they were going to hurt classmates.

Police investigated and determined that the threat was not credible, that no crime had been committed, and no laws were violated that would lead to an arrest.

The student, who lives in Springfield, has been suspended from school.

“Things become real. You always hear about it having it far away, oh that area has problems. Not my hometown,” said Andrew Tilbe, of Easthampton.

Alexander noted that he believes that there will be police presence in the morning and at dismissal on Wednesday so that everyone feels safe.

“Something needs to be done, whether it is close to home or not, it’s always hard,” said Lindsey Lajoie, of Easthampton.
