The Texas Department of Public Safety has detained a man in regard to a threat investigation that began on Thursday.

On Friday, MPD officials announced via their social media that they were aware of a Facebook post that claims a shooter was coming from Lamesa to Midland. However, the MPD said they had found no credible information to substantiate the reports.

The Department also noted they were working with multiple agencies and would monitor the situations.

A little more than an hour later, officials announced that a suspect had been detained.

While details are limited at this time, we are working to gather more information.
