Threatening Post To San Diego on Craigslist References Orlando Shooting

Police are investigating a post on Craiglist that allegedly threatened San Diego by using a reference to the deadly shooting in Orlando, Florida.

On Sunday morning, 49 people killed when a gunman opened fire inside a gay nightclub in Orlando. The gunman was shot and killed by authorities.

More than 50 people were injured in what is being called the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

A recent post on Craigslist allegedly threatened a similiar incident in San Diego.

In response to the post, Chief Shelley Zimmerman of the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) released the following statement on Wednesday:

“The San Diego Police Department is aware of a recent post on Craigslist that has since been removed. We are investigating it collaboratively with our law enforcement partners. The latest information remains, there are no known credible threats to the San Diego region. As always, we encourage our community if they see something, hear something, or know something, to say something.”
