LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Extra security was on hand at Tarkanian Middle School on Friday morning after threats to the school were discovered on Snapchat.

School officials say they were notified of the threats by some students. The threats included the poster saying they were going to shoot up the school with an assault rifle that belonged to the poster's dad.

The Snapchat account was deemed to be a fake one, but the threat is being taken very seriously. The beefed-up security presence is expected to remain at the school throughout the day.

If an arrest is made, Clark County School District Police say the person who made the threats will face charges of making terroristic threats against a school.
