2 students arrested in connection to threats at Irving Nimitz HS

Irving police say they have arrested 2 students connected to threats against Irving Nimitz High School and a teacher.

Irving PD says a general threatening social media post was edited by students on separate occasions. One person tagged Nimitz, the other tagged a teacher at the school.

Both of the juveniles were identified and arrested.

Screenshots of the post sent to FOX 4 by viewers warn about a shooting on campus on Wednesday.

"There is no known or credible threat against any campus in Irving," said police in a statement.

The original post is believed to have originated outside the state, according to Irving police.
