MILFORD - Milford police say they have a man in custody who threatened to shoot school children getting off their bus Tuesday.

Authorities say the threat was posted on the Caswell Cove Condominium Association's Web site. Milford's computer crimes unit was able to track the post to a 47-year-old condo resident.

Milford police put extra patrols in the complex after the threat was discovered. The students were escorted home by police officers after getting off the bus.

Police say they have not yet charged the man so they cannot release much information. However, authorities have acknowledged the man has guns registered to his name.

According to a resident of the complex, the forum and threat thread have been taken off the Web site.
