Coconino County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to assist the Navajo Police Department and the Bureau of Indian Affairs Leupp School with a possible threat at about 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Coconino County Sheriff Commander of Operations Rex Gilliland tells 12 News someone with the school found a letter in a restroom threatening that there would be a shooting at the school.
