School shooting threats posted online prompt Superior house raid

BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies served a search warrant Thursday after receiving what they described as credible advice regarding a man who allegedly made online threats.

On September 15, Boulder County deputies served a warrant at a house in Superior. They said they received a tip that the person living there had posted racist material, as well as threats of violence, on an anonymous social media platform. The BCSO said at least some of the threats of violence included “inciting school shootings.”

On Friday, BCSO said no specific school was mentioned in any of these social media threats.

While executing the warrant on Eldorado Circle, investigators found a handgun, along with newspapers and digital evidence. The Boulder County Digital Forensics Lab has since begun searching for additional evidence.

Additionally, office officials have made it clear that no arrests have been made in connection with this investigation.

“The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind members of the community to report ongoing suspicious or violent behavior by calling 911,” BCSO said in a statement released Friday.

If you witness suspicious behavior, you are encouraged to contact the BCSO non-emergency number by calling 303-441-4444.
