A Hamilton county man is under arrest this evening, accused of trying to force, dirty pictures from a 14-year-old girl under the threat of 'shooting up' her school.

Trevor Blanchard, 24, now faces felony charges.

Police and Gloversville school officials took the situation quite seriously, cutting off outside access to the high school before making their arrest today.

The alleged felonies, making terroristic threats and disseminating indecent materials to minors, were apparently carried out using computers and the social media application, Snapchat.
