MCSO: Caller threatens Circle K, nearby school

Posted: Updated:

Maricopa County sheriff's deputies upped security and searched a northern Phoenix community after a male caller threatened a school.

The suspect called the Circle K at 39414 N. Daisy Mountain Dr. and said he placed a package at one of the gas pumps, MCSO said. The caller also stated, "remember Columbine, that will happen tomorrow at the school near your store."

Deputies searched the Circle K and nearby schools, including Anthem Preparatory Academy, but said they found "no substantiate threat," MCSO said.

MCSO said detectives continue to investigate where the threat came from.
