The following is a press release from Hamilton, NJ Police Division.

​The Hamilton Police Division reports a non-credible threat to the Hamilton West High School that occurred on Monday, December 4th, 2017.

A digital image of a hand holding a gun with a threatening message was posted on the Instagram account of a Hamilton High West student. Other students immediately reported the threat to staff. The staff along with the school resource officer located and spoke with the juvenile suspect and found the threat to lack credibility, as the student had no access to firearms and had simply pulled a generic image off the web.

​Any member of the public with information regarding this incident should contact Detective Agron of the Hamilton Police Division Juvenile Unit (609) 581-4128.
