Chappaqua teen accused of making terroristic threatPosted: Updated:
A Chappaqua teen is accused of threatening to shoot up Somers high School.
Investigators say Luke Visser, 16, made threats to initiate a school shooting there to another student.
State police said Visser’s threats included sending a picture of himself holding what appeared to be a rifle.
When police arrived at his house, they found four legally owned rifles and confiscated them.
Investigators initially thought the threats were made toward Westfield Day School in Armonk, but the district attorney's office said they learned it was for a different school.
Visser was released on a $15,000 cash bond Monday afternoon but was taken back into custody.
The district attorney's office said he is a danger to the community.
"We take school threats very seriously and will continue working closely with New York State Police and other law enforcement agencies to keep our children safe," said Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino in a statement.
While in custody Visser will undergo a psychiatric exam and be placed on suicide watch.
He is expected to be back in court on June 4.
