    Investigators discovered a 12-year-old female student at Nova Middle School was behind the threats, with the teen at first denying being the person who made them before telling investigators she meant it as a prank and was "put up" to posting the messages.

    The tweet later went on to say that investigators do not believe there is any additional threats and students are safe to return to campus, adding that officers will be present.
