Tucson High and Mountain View High Dealing With Threats This Morning

A 16 year old has been arrested for allegedly making a threat against Tucson Magnet High School Friday morning. The threat ultimately wasn't deemed credible, but the whole situation is very scary!

According to TPD Sgt. Pete Dugan, the threat was sent via text message from a teen who does not attend the school to another teen.

TUSD sent out this message to families of students at Tucson High:

Good morning Tucson High Family. We want to let you know that just after midnight, we learned of a social media threat regarding the school. Tucson Police and TUSD School Safety investigated and found that the threat was not credible and was made by a student from a non TUSD school. Law enforcement has the student in custody. School will continue normally at Tucson High today. As part of normal protocol, School Safety officers will be on campus.
