Shannen Doherty's Suicidal Scare! Cops Called After Fan Threatens Death!

shannen doherty suicidal fan scare

Whoa. This is frightening!

Shannen Doherty was on Twitter this past Sunday night when she received a number of disturbing messages from a suicidal fan.

In the message the 27-year-old fan threatened that unless Shannen called, the woman planned to take her own life. And Shannen says she had reason to believe the woman possessed a gun.

After securing the woman's address, Shannen gave it to New Jersey's Westampton Township Police Department. But when the police arrived, the woman was found in her room with nothing around to lead the cops to believe she was an actual danger to herself.

Though they offered her medical attention, the woman declined and the police left. But Shannen was clearly still thinking of the matter as she later tweeted her thanks to the WPD for their "diligent" and "reassuring" response.

So was this just a joke or did the woman really want to kill herself?? We're hoping it was just the former — though it wasn't funny. At all.

PLEASE call 1-800-273-8255 if you need to talk to someone!

    she should have to go to jail for the unnecessary stir

    This is not a joke guys. Imagine the guilt one would have to live with is this was a true cry for help rather than the rantings of an obsessed fan.
    People need to get a grip and stop thinking that a celebrity is any better than themselves. They may not have the same amount of disposable cash, but that is where the differences end. People, rich and poor, all have emotional feelings - no one is safe from disappointment or poor health. So to all of you obsessed folk, get a grip and start working on yourself.

    Just to clear the air my daughter has down syndrome and did not understand the consequences of her actions. Quite frankly I never addressed the situation before because I thought it would blow over. Now that Shannen has gotten her five minutes of fame,she neglected to share with the public my daughters handicap,that she has no access to guns, and she merely is admittedly an over zealous fan thats only dream was to get to meet or talk to Shannen. A real hero would have followed through when she found out the above information but like a true Hollywood story, don't believe everything you read!!!

    To Mom: I am truly sorry for your daughter's situation. Ms Doherty had no obligation to do anything more than call the police. It's a shame about your daughter, truly. How was Shannen to know she didn't have access to a gun? And you are going off about how she didn't do enough to explain about your child's handicap? She was trying to do the right thing. What if she hadn't? What if your girl had access to some method of suicide that you were unaware of? She was threatening suicide to a celebrity online. Calling the police was the absolute right thing to do.
