Maricopa High School reported receiving a bomb threat this morning at 9 a.m. Information was sent out to parents at 10 a.m.

“There was a bomb threat,” Maricopa Police spokesman Ricardo Alvarado said. “The high school has been locked down. At this time, it is just the high school. Police are on the scene.”

Gates were locked, and no one was allowed in or out of the campus, though some parents gathered in the parking lot.

Around 11 a.m. students were ushered to the football field.

InMaricopa will report information as it becomes available.
