KPNX) Two Arizona cheerleaders are under investigation following a "hit list" they posted on the Internet, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.
An eighth-grader from Walker Butte K-8 School and a 10th-grader from Poston Butte High School, both cheerleaders, are suspected of posting a picture of a "hit list" with a picture of a pistol next to the title on a popular social media site, said Tamra Ingersoll with the Sheriff's Office.
Officials from Florence Unified School District were first notified about the list when a parent e-mailed two staff members regarding it, according to a statement the district released.
The girls maintained they did not intend to harm anyone on the list, Ingersoll said.
"Neither student has a history of disciplinary incidents," the school district's statement said. "However, all threats are taken very seriously, and both students will be suspended pending a hearing."
