TUCSON, Ariz. (13 News) - The Oro Valley Police Department is investigating reports of a possible threat at Ironwood Ridge High School.

In a social media posts this morning, Oro Valley Police said the reports of a potential threat to students “was the result of five different people who had read social media posts about a possible incident they thought may occur at the school. It was determined that the “threat” was the result of a non-specific comment that had been embellished as it had been passed along, ultimately ending in a post that warned of a shooting at the school.”

OVPD says those reports have been deemed unsubstantiated and the school is open for normal business today.
