Police investigate social media school shooting threat in Deming


DEMING, N.M. (KRQE) – There will be extra security precautions at Deming schools Tuesday after a threat made on social media to shoot up the school at lunchtime.

The assistant principal sent out a notification to parents saying there will be extra police on campus for the remainder of the week.

Superintendent Arsenio Romero also said that they “are taking the threats very seriously” and are working with law enforcement.

The superintendent says he believes the threat was prompted by the recent deaths of two students. One of those deaths involved a 15-year-old.

Police have classified his death as a murder, but have not released any more details.
