Over the past weekend, the Corpus Christi Police Department was notified by a concerned citizen of a social media post that appeared to make threats of violence toward the students and staff at two local schools. Investigators with the Criminal Investigation Division and Organized Crime Unit immediately launched an investigation to determine the validity of these threats as well as to identify the suspect or suspects involved.

Operations Division officers met with the administrations at both schools along with the CCISD police department to coordinate a law enforcement response and Uniformed presence at both campuses.

CCPD Detectives, working closely with their federal partners with the FBI and Homeland Security Investigations, have gathered information that leads them to believe that these suspicious social media posts originated from outside the United States. Investigators are continuing the investigation to determine the identity of the foreign poster, as well to determine whether he or she has any local ties to the community.
