Boise police were at Borah High School Thursday afternoon, investigating a report of an armed man. The incident occurred after 5 p.m.

An Ada County dispatcher said he did not know if there was an armed man.

“It looks like there was a verbal threat of one,” he said. “They are with the subject.”

At about 6:30 p.m., Boise Police spokesman Ryan Larrondo told the Statesman there was some sort of miscommunication — and no crime occurred. He did not have any additional details.

About a half dozen police cars were parked around the front of the school around 5:30 p.m.

No other information about the incident was immediately available.
