Delhi and Schoharie False Alarm Lockdown Information

Written By Editor on 7/15/22 | 7/15/22

On July 13, 2022 at approximately 10:30 am the Delhi Village Police received a report from the Delaware County 911 Center that a subject had made a threat that he was going to the Delaware County Court House in Delhi to shoot people. Police immediately responded to the location identified in the report and effected the evacuation of the downtown Main Street area and the Delhi Farmer’s Market that was being held on the Courthouse Square. The County Courthouse as well as numerous county, school and municipal buildings were notified of the threat and followed their lockdown procedures.
After safely securing the reported target area police were able to fully investigate the threat. Investigating officers were able to interview all parties involved in the making of this report, including the suspect. Investigators were able to conclude that there were no actual threats made by the suspect to shoot or cause harm to anyone. It was further determined that prior to being reported to the 911 Center, and after numerous retellings of a conversation the suspect had in the Village of Walton, the information reported did not accurately represent the statements that the suspect actually made. After the suspect was located by police and it was confirmed that there was no public threat, the evacuation and lockdowns in the downtown Main Street area were lifted.
The Delhi Village Police Department was assisted throughout this incident by members of the New York State Police, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, New York State University Police at SUNY Delhi, the Walton Village Police Department and NYS Court Officers.
