A high school student from Poughkeepsie, NY is being hailed a hero after she alerted authorities that a former classmate was planning a shooting rampage at his new high school in Vermont with a shotgun.
Police arrested 18-year-old student, Jack Sawyer. He's now facing charges and is being held without bail. Last Thursday, Vermont authorities received a report from the Duchess County Sheriff's Office that Sawyer had been making specific threats in an online conversation with a girl at a school in Poughkeepsie.
