The Chandler Police Department is investigating a threat made toward Basha High School.

Police said a student said something in class that other students deemed as a possible threat, and posted on social media about it. 

Investigators said they were able to identify the student who made the statement and determined that no viable threat was made.

Chandler police said they still plan to have additional officers near the school Friday.
