Instagram Chaparral High School threats

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Clark County School District police said officers were actively investigating threats against Chaparral High School that were posted on social media.

The threats were posted to Instagram under the username, "jayeasykill." In the post's description, "jayeasykill" claims he or she is "really sick of living" and wants to "get revenge" on the school because his or her brother was expelled "for something he did not do."

The account that posted the threats was deactivated as of Monday morning. According to CCSD police, it was unknown who created the post.

CCSD police said they were working with Las Vegas Metropolitan police to investigate the threats, CCSDPD spokesman Lt. Darnell Couthen said. The principal of Chaparral High School was also working with law enforcement. 

Lt. Couthen said it was up to the parents if they wanted to pull their children from school, though he added parents had no reason to be alarmed.

Extra patrols, as well as Metro Police, were sent to the Chaparral campus to enforce security, Couthen said.
