NFL Star Julian Edelman May Have Helped Prevent a School Shooting

Patriots' Julian Edelman May Have Thwarted a School Shooting New England Patriots star Julian Edelman may have stopped school shooting

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, his assistant and an unidentified Instagram user have been credited with stopping a possible school shooting in MI.

Edelman alerted his assistant, who went through the comments on Edleman's Instagram feed - no small task, given that Edelman's posts routinely receive hundreds of comments - and did indeed find that one person had posted, "I'm going to shoot up a school watch the news".

Edelman notified his assistant, and after Shannon Moen scanned the comments and alerted authorities in Boston, the 14-year-old boy was soon arrested at his mother's house in MI, where two of her rifles were discovered.

Julian Edelman was tipped off to a poster in his Instagram comments threatening to shoot up a school via a direct message.

Moen instantly contacted police and authorities which led them to Port Huron, Michigan the location the user sent the threat from.




The Times reports a 14-year-old boy was taken to a juvenile-detention center, where he remains. Police also found two rifles that belong to his mother. He was taken into custody and has been charged with making a false report of a threat of terrorism, a felony that can result in four years in prison.

"With the emotions of what happened, and I have a kid now, I said, 'Holy Toledo, what is going on?'" he told the Times.

Edelman said the "real hero" was the Instagram user who initially flagged the comment.

"Thankfully, this kid said something", said Edelman, who has played in three Super Bowls with the Patriots in his eight-year N.F.L. career.
