New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, his assistant and an unidentified Instagram user have been credited with stopping a possible school shooting in MI.

The Times reported that when local police went to the user's address, they found a 14-year-old boy who admitted to posting the threat. His mother had two rifles in the home.

Edelman was notified via direct message on Instagram that a disturbing comment was left on his page.

They included fighters from the Faylaq al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Sham rebel groups, their families and other residents. It was not immediate possible to confirm the details of the deal and there was no comment from the Army of Islam.

With the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, still fresh on his mind, the football player immediately alerted his assistant, Shannen Moen, who tracked down the comment and called 911.

Edelman alerted his assistant here in Boston and she then found the post and called police.

Moen has reached out to the sender of the direct message who gave the warning about Edelman; however, she has not received any response back. Thankfully, this fan and Edelman were able to put the breaks on what could have been another national disaster. "Our on-duty supervisors immediately started looking into the information that was provided", said Capt. Joe Platzer of the Port Huron Police Department in MI.

Corporations may have their own reasons to applaud the Trump Administration's tax bill, but there has been a lot of criticism. Trump offered no details about the report he cited or how he planned to charge the company more through USPS.

"When I told Julian, he was in shock", Moen said.

According to Platzer, Port Huron detectives spoke to Edelman and credited him with bringing the threat forward. "We're going to send him something, a care package, just for his work". The boy was sent to a juvenile-detention center and was charged with making a false report of a threat of terrorism, which is a felony punishable by up to four years in prison.

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is beloved in Foxborough for his efforts on the field, but he played the role of real-life hero and may have saved dozens of lives.
