JULIAN EDELMAN of the New England Patriots may very well have stopped a school shooting. Here's what happened . . .
Someone messaged Julian on Instagram and told him, quote, "Dude, there is a kid in your comment section says he's going to shoot up a school, I think you should alert the authority."
Julian immediately notified his assistant, who located the comment. It said, quote, "I'm going to shoot my school up watch the news."
Julian's assistant called the cops, who identified the would-be shooter as a teenager from Port Huron, Michigan. And apparently, the threat was real. The kid had TWO RIFLES. He was arrested and taken to a juvenile detention center.
Julian said the person who first alerted him to the comment is the real hero, and he's going to send him a "care package."
