NFL Star Julian Edelman May Have Helped Prevent a School Shooting

NFL Star Julian Edelman May Have Helped Prevent a School Shooting

According to The New York Times, Edelman heeded a message to his Instagram account last month that pointed him to the following comment on one of his posts: "I'm going to shoot my school up watch the news". Per the New York Times, detectives tracked the commenter to a house in MI and worked with their police officers, who found a 14-year-old boy living at the address who admitted to making the comment. After police arrived at the location, they found a 14-year-old boy and two rifles that belonged to the boy's mother.

As noted by Nelson, Moen and Edelman are now trying to track down the person who informed him of the threatening message - wanting to show their thanks for potentially stopping a massive tragedy.

Edelman instantly thought of the mass shooting about five weeks earlier in Parkland, Fla., in which 17 people were killed.

Edelman reportedly told his assistant in Boston, who immediately contacted police. (Someone with the Instagram handle jesseyi3.) Moen has reached out to that person, but so far has received no response. Thankfully, this fan and Edelman were able to put the breaks on what could have been another national disaster.

The boy admitted to posting the threat.

Platzer said the boy's threat was aimed at the middle school that he attends in a nearby township. "Like we tell everybody, if you see something, if you hear something, say something".

The boy was taken into custody and charged with "making a false report of a threat of terrorism" which is a felony that holds up to a four-year punishment in jail. "We take these threats very seriously".

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is beloved in Foxborough for his efforts on the field, but he played the role of real-life hero and may have saved dozens of lives.
