CALLICOON A student at the Delaware Valley Job Corps was arrested on Sunday and charged with felonies after threatening to go on a shooting rampage.
Sullivan County sheriff's deputies say Patrick Milliken, 20, was charged after three students reported that Milliken, at separate times on Sunday, threatened to go to his home in Newburgh and get a gun, then return "to shoot up the Job Corps and kill himself," Undersheriff Eric Chaboty said. Milliken was found late Sunday hiding outside a building on campus after going missing.
Chaboty said deputies are still investigating why Milliken allegedly made the threats and whether he owns any weapons. Chaboty said that Milliken dropped out of school in the 10th grade and has been enrolled in the job training program on campus since April. The Job Corps runs federally funded vocational and academic training programs for students, who live on campus.
Deputies were called about 8 p.m., Chaboty said. By the time they arrived, Milliken had been found by campus security.
Milliken was charged with three counts of making a terrorist threat, arraigned and sent to Sullivan County Jail on $15,000 bail.
Sheriff Mike Schiff said it is possible Milliken read about Friday's shootings at the Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Conn., and got the idea to threaten a copy-cat spree. Schiff said Milliken did not mention Sandy Hook when he made the alleged threats.
"Our response would have been the same," Schiff said
Ban guns. That’ll solve the problem.
Should be NO bail.
Well, he just got himself a job making license plates.
