Law enforcement agencies are keeping a close eye on Susquehanna Valley School District buildings following the Buffalo shooting rampage that allegedly involved a Conklin teen.

In the aftermath of Saturday's western New York attack in which 10 people were killed, Susquehanna Valley school superintendent Roland Doig issued a statement indicating the district would operate on a two-hour delay schedule Monday.

18-year-old Payton Gendron, a 2021 Susquehanna Valley High School graduate, has been charged with first-degree murder in the mass shooting. He is being held in Erie County.

New York State Police and the Broome County Sheriff's Office are working with the district school resource officer to deal with potential security issues. Police agency representatives met with school district officials on Sunday to discuss their concerns.

Law enforcement officers searched the town of Conklin house where Gendron is said to have lived with his parents and two brothers. Investigators have not revealed what they may have removed from the home.

The dead end street where the home is located was closed for police operations Saturday evening and most of Sunday.

People who live near the Gendron residence said Payton was the oldest of the family's three boys.

One neighbor who attended Payton Gendron's high school graduation party last June said "this whole thing shocks all of us." She said Gendron seemed to be looking forward to attending college and appeared to have some plans for the future.
