The Patriots' star Jewish wide receiver has played in three Super Bowls, starred in a series of comedic videos, written a children's book - and now he may have thwarted a school shooting.

"Thankfully, this kid said something", ...

What she found was a line that stated: "I'm going to shoot my school up watch the news". "I think you should alert the authorities", the direct message to Edelman said.

Edelman instantly thought of the mass shooting about five weeks earlier in Parkland, Fla., in which 17 people were killed.

Julian Edelman was tipped off to a poster in his Instagram comments threatening to shoot up a school via a direct message. They then returned to their office, where they made an emergency records request for account information, which allowed them to determine the sender's email and IP address, which was traced to Port Huron, Mich.

It's unclear whether or not the boy meant to follow up on his threat, but the Times reports that police found rifles belonging to the boy's mother at the house.

In response to questions about the disturbing posting on Edelman's account, Boston Police Department spokeswoman Maisha Miraj would neither confirm nor deny who was involved, but said, "We were alerted to a post. I'm glad that nothing happened", the boy told 7News. Without Edelman's reaction to the alarming social media post, police said, it's likely they would not have known about the threat.

The boy, who was arrested on a felony charge of making a false report of a threat of terrorism - punishable by up to four years in prison - remains in a juvenile-detention center. We look into them very thoroughly.
