Police arrested two people this week on suspicion of making online threats against Mulvane High School, a spokesman for the school district said Wednesday evening.
Officials at the school discovered postings on social media site Twitter on Monday morning and alerted authorities, Tom Keil, the Mulvane School District director of human resources and communication, said Wednesday evening.
The threats, he said, involved “shooting up the school.” Officials found at least two posts, he said.
Keil said police arrived at the school prior to the start of classes, conducted an investigation and made the arrests. He would not disclose the ages or gender of the pair taken into custody.
“Police determined before school started that the school was safe,” Keil said, “and we proceeded with school as normal.”
