In terms of the harassment Cedeno alleged, Boyce said that he told detectives he had been bothered by other students - not McCree and Laboy - at the school but didn't identify them. He has preliminarily been charged with one count of murder, two counts of of attempted murder, one count of manslaughter, one count of attempted manslaughter, two counts of assault, and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

Cedeno's move from the classroom to the courtroom came after authorities installed metal detectors early Thursday at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation in East Tremont. "And they're crying, wondering what is going on, and the school didn't even call me".
