"Earlier this afternoon I was informed by the 49th Police Precinct that administrators at the Christopher Columbus High School Campus on Astor Avenue received a terror threat this morning. The campus was immediately placed on lockdown while members of the New York City Police Department (NYPD) secured each building before giving an 'all clear.' I would like to thank the men and women of the NYPD, as well as school administrators, for their quick response to ensure that all students and faculty members were safe from any potential danger. Threats such as these are not to be taken lightly. This unfortunate situation is a reminder that if you see, hear, or receive any type of possible threat anywhere to immediately tell an adult, an employee, or a police officer. We must all look out for each other," said Assemblyman Mark Gjonaj.
