Police have arrested a man after he allegedly threated to “shoot up” a Lowell elementary school.
Robert McDaniel, 36, allegedly posted threats against Pawtucketville Memorial Elementary School and its students on a school website, WHDH reported.
In the post, which police used to eventually locate McDaniel, the suspect allegedly claimed that he had a rifle and would “shoot up the school,” Fox 25 stated.
“He's been drinking and doing drugs for 25 years. Should be in a program – no court can make him take medicine,” McDaniel’s father was quoted by Fox 25 talking about his son. “It's against the law to make him take medicine unless they arrest him.”
