DEMING, N.M. — Anonymous social media threats forced more than 1,000 Deming High School students to stay home as administers worked to quell fears about possible violence.

The Deming Headlight reports police officers were dispatched to campus Tuesday in response to social media posts that began circulating last weekend.

Two posts on Snapchat alluded to a threat of a shooting at a school.

Deming Public Schools Superintendent Arsenio Romero says school officials were working with police to investigate the posts. No arrests have been made.

Three girls’ basketball games scheduled for Tuesday afternoon and evening proceeded as scheduled.
