MESA, Ariz. (FOX 10) - Mesa police are investigating a school threat after they received a tweet from someone who claims they are going to bring a loaded AR-15 and explosives to a Valley school.
According to the Mesa Police Department, the person who posted the original message claims to be 16-years-old and will be going to school with a loaded AR-15. The person also claims seven custom-made explosive pipe bombs have been already planted around the building.
Update- We are still in the process of investigating this particular threat, but at this time believe it to be a hoax. We take all threats to our schools very seriously and are working with our partners at all Mesa schools to make sure they are aware of these types of threats.— Mesa Police Dept.

The tweet also includes the address of the person who is making the threat, however, we have blurred out that part of the tweet.
The school that is being threatened was not named and police are asking anyone with information to give them a call.
