No threat from online post about Ironwood Ridge High School

ORO VALLEY - An internet post that appeared to make threats against Ironwood Ridge High School turned out to be a false alarm, according to the Oro Valley Police Department.

In a statement released early Wednesday, a police spokesperson said the minor who created the post had no "malicious intent" and no criminal violations.

The post featured an aerial image of the high school with the words, "in a week from now the whole world will know this high school." OVPD confirmed to us that the post was alluding to a football rivalry.

Oro Valley police and the FBI began investigating Tuesday after numerous parents voiced their concerns. The post was also shared heavily on social media.

Oro Valley Police and Amphi School District offiicials confirmed that the person who posted the perceived threat is an Amphi District student but would not say if that student is enrolled at Ironwood High.
