A student from the Southern Regional High School arrested for threatening
An 18-year-old student from the southern region was arrested and charged with uttering threats of violence while driving a school bus on Tuesday morning.
A parent, meanwhile, told the principal of a Union County elementary school that she was going to “shoot the whole place.”
Deven Marino, from the Manahawkin section of Stafford, is a student at Southern Regional High School. He has been charged with making terrorist threats and will not be allowed to return to school, according to police chief Thomas Delanne.
Delanne did not disclose the nature of the threat.
Marino is being held at the Ocean County Jail.
Disagreement leads to threat from parents
In another case, a parent who got angry during a phone conversation with the principal of Jefferson Elementary School, told the administrator she was going to shoot the school, police said. The threat prompted a lockdown on Tuesday afternoon.
Union Police said while officers tried to locate the parent, the pupils remained behind and the school’s closure was delayed. Officers were posted inside and outside the building.
The relative was located within an hour as she drove home and police accused her of making terrorist threats. Police have not released the identity of the parent being held at Union County Jail.
It is part of a series of threats against schools in New Jersey since the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. 19 students and two teachers were killed in the gunfire.

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey
A trip to New Jersey doesn’t have to be just the beach. Our state has incredible trails, waterfalls and lakes to enjoy.
From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to New Jersey’s hidden gems, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it’s a great workout.
If you descend and encounter an uphill hiker, pull to the side and give the uphill hiker some space. An uphill hiker has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.
Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless marked as an official trail, avoid them. Going off the trail, you risk damaging the ecosystems around the trail, the plants and wildlife that live there.
You also don’t want to disturb any wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.
Cyclists must yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also give in to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you’ll encounter on New Jersey trails.
If you plan to take your dog on your hike, they must be on a leash and be sure to clean up all pet waste.
Finally, pay attention to the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it’s probably best to save your hike for another day.
