STAFFORD, NJ — The Stafford Police Department arrested seven male students who attend the Stafford Township Intermediate School, charging each with making terroristic threats. 

The arrests were the result of two separate incidents in which the male students made threats to shoot up the school and stated that they were going to become active shooters, according to police.

In one incident, school officials were notified of the comments through an in-district electronic notification system in which students can make reports to school officials of incidents such as harassment, intimidation and bullying. They received the alert at the time the students were being dismissed for the day. School officials were able to intercept the student named in the report who was alleged to have been making the threats and remove him from his school bus, police said.
