Trumbull Student from Stratford Accused of Shooting Threat

He allegedly 'made a threat to return to [Cooperative Education Services] in a manner similar to the tragedy in Newtown' last month.

An 18-year-old former student at Cooperative Education Services in Trumbull allegedly threatened to return to the school and start shooting.

James Patrick Ryan, of South Avenue, Stratford, is charged with second-degree threatening and second-degree breach of the peace.

"At 10:03 a.m., Officers were dispatched to Cooperative Educational Services located at 25 Oakview Drive, Trumbull. According to staff members, a student at the school was being told he could no longer return there. The student's mother arrived to take him home and as he was leaving, he made a threat to return to the school in a manner similar to the tragedy in Newtown, on Dec. 14, 2012," said Trumbull Deputy Police Chief Michael Harry.

 "Officers were immediately assigned to the school's two locations and detectives immediately prepared a search warrant for both the suspect and any weapons. The warrant was served in Stratford with the assistance of Stratford Police and was accomplished without incident," he said.

Ryan was held in lieu of $25,000 bond for an appearance Jan. 28 in Bridgeport Superior Court.

How is it that a staff member can make a decision to ban a student from ever returning to a school? How is it that an 18 year attends a CES school in the first place? There certainly is more to this story. Olivia

I know this kid... I am a student at CES and the reason that he was banned from the school is because he was a physical, abusive person and he only went to CES a few times this year. District didn't want to pay for a student that was not attending school. I remember him walking up to me and threatening me a bunch of time. Before you people make assumptions about the school and make accusations that it is the schools fault, etc. make sure you know what you are talking about because one who starts rumors is wrong. If anyone wants to speak with me or has any questions about this, please email me at pab436@yahoo.com Thank you!
