The comments were not directed at a specific individual or entity but were of sufficient concern that the public school and sheriff's office were made aware of the threats.
Gunnison Schools, which consists of three separate buildings, elected to activate their security plan and went onto a heightened security level at approximately 11 a.m.
The individual in question was contacted by the Gunnison County Sheriff's Office at approximately 11:45 a.m. at his residence in the county. The schools were notified and lowered the security level.
Incident remains under investigation.
