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.
