TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

For the second time in a day, a Tucson high school had to react to a potential threat on campus on Thursday, May 11.

Stephanie Boe, spokeswoman for the Tucson Unified School District, said Pueblo Magnet High was placed under a hard lockdown after there were reports of a weapon on campus.

Boe said the lockdown lasted less than 10 minutes and the item turned out to not be a weapon.

Pueblo dismissed students at the normal time, according to Boe.

Earlier in the day, TUSD and police investigated a social media threat made against Palo Verde High.

Boe said neither TUSD nor the police believed the threat to be credible, but extra security was be present at the school located at 1302 S. Avenida Vega.

Students brought what Boe called the "vague threat" to the district's attention on Wednesday night, May 10.
