Three Liverpool schools temporarily locked down over concerns Pennsylvania homicide suspect could be in area

David Edick

Three schools in the Liverpool School District were temporarily on lockdown Thursday morning after the school learned that a man wanted in connection to a homicide in Pennsylvania could be headed to the Syracuse area.

The district said in an email to the community that the district had "received a verbal threat" and Liverpool High School, the 9th Grade Annex, and Morgan Road Elementary School on Wetzel Road were locked down.

The Onondaga County Sheriffâ??s Officeâ??s says a family member of the suspect did not know if the man, 27-year-old David Edick, was coming to the area, but told the district out of concern for her children and the students in the district.

The schools were locked down as a precaution and the lockdown was lifted around 9:45 a.m. The Sheriffâ??s Office says there is no further concern by the school district.

The Sheriffâ??s Officeâ??s says Edick was arrested near Pittsburgh around 3:00 a.m. Thursday. Edick was charged with criminal homicide and burglary for allegedly shooting his ex-wifeâ??s live-in boyfriend last month.
