ABC15 has learned a man is being questioned after making threats against police and Donald Trump supporters in the Valley just a day after Election Day.  

The Arizona Department of Public Safety acted quickly when they learned a Phoenix man tweeted out a message that said:

"Let me know where the riots are Phoenix I'm trying to kill at least 4 cops and 20 old white people." 

ABC15 has learned the man sent out several concerning tweets, and DPS is questioning him. 

Four state troopers, two border patrol agents and two crisis response team members were at the man's house at the time of the investigation. 

The man has not yet been arrested, but DPS is still looking into this incident.
