A dangerousness hearing for a woman who is accused of making threats about shooting people at The Walpole Times newspaper has been postponed until Monday.

Amy I. Zuckerman, 64, of 457 Wendell Road, Shutesbury, who was arrested on Saturday in Amherst on a charge of making terroristic threats, is being held without bail at an unspecified location until the hearing takes place at Wrentham District Court.

The arrest was made on a Walpole Police warrant after Zuckerman sent an email to an employee at the newspaper Friday in which she twice threatened to shoot people at its office, according to court documents.

Zuckerman is an author, journalist and founder of the Hidden Tech networking association.

The incident at the Walpole newspaper came the same day the Daily Hampshire Gazette sought a trespass notice against Zuckerman following an incident at the newspaper’s 115 Conz St. office in Northampton.

After Zuckerman was asked to leave the Gazette building due to her behavior, she wrote a lengthy email to staff members that raised additional concerns.
