A substitute teacher in Queens has been arrested for threatening to shoot a classroom full of middle schoolers on Wednesday. 52-year-old Alejandro Rocha allegedly told the art class at Walter Crowley School “If you won’t do as you’re told, I’m gonna shoot you…and yes, I have a gun.” He admitted to making the comment and apologized for making the “bad joke” to the group of unruly 11 and 12-year-olds. He’s been charged with making a terroristic threat and suspended without pay.
