CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Clovis police have arrested a 17-year-old male Clovis High School student after authorities learned of a social media post apparently threatening a shooting at the school.

Police say the boy was arrested after authorities learned late Thursday night of a Snapchat post of a photo of a person holding a rifle with captions that referred to the school and said the person would be “going out with a bang.”

Police say the boy was arrested on a warrant alleging a “delinquent act of aggravated assault on a school employee.”

The boy’s name wasn’t released but police confirmed he’s a student.

Classes began normally Friday at the school.

Clovis was the site of a 2017 shooting at the city library in which two people were killed and four injured.
