Threat received by students at D60's Risley International Academy

Posted: Updated:

There's an extra police presence right now at District 60's Risley International Academy of Innovation due to a threatening message received via Facebook  before lunchtime. 

Pueblo Police Capt. Kenny Rider tells News 5 a message on Facebook from someone threatened to shoot 6 named students at the campus. 

The campus was placed on secure perimeter status as the information came in. Authorities and the district are now investigating.

The secure perimeter status means you'll see more officers on and around the campus. Classes are not impacted by the change in security.


Parents and community members are invited to participate in a town hall conversation with southern Colorado school and law enforcement officials to learn more about school threat investigations, responsible reporting, and the actions parents can take during a crisis.

The town hall will be moderated by KOAA News 5's Rob Quirk and Elizabeth Watts.

Have a question for members of our panel? Please submit them via email to townhall@koaa.com.

Then join us for the event:
