BREAKING: Dallas Police Chief Investigating Gun Threat to Donald Trump (Update: Secret Service Involved)

Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown is investigating a gun threat made against presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump Thursday night right before Trump’s rally at Gilley’s.

A screen capture of a photograph posted to Twitter to the account of “@Alejandro_Bruh” shows a male placing a black handgun into a lime green colored backpack with the message, “#TrumpInDallas, gonna be lit” The account has been made private.

The person who made the screen capture, “@SteampunkMuppet” first tweeted it to the Dallas Police and the FBI but received no response.

A few minutes later she tweeted the screen image to a reporter for the Dallas Morning News, Robert Wilonsky, asking for help getting the attention of the Dallas Police.

“@RobertWilonsky Hey Robert, any way to get something like this to DPD besides tweeting at them?”

Within minutes someone tweeted the screen capture to the Dallas Police and Chief Brown.
