Just saw a local news cut in about a bomb threat on a WN flight going PHX to ELP, the plane is now returning to PHX and the news said PHX was in a lockdown. Can't find anything else to indicate this is happening, anyone else have any details?
Edited to change title and add: I just texted a coworker and he confirmed that something is indeed going on at the airport right now, but didn't go into detail, must be busy.

Reported as WN 792. A number of threatening phone calls were received and the plane was brought back to PHX. The aircraft is isolated on the northeast corner of the airport. All passengers and their baggage is being rescreened and the aircraft is being searched. According to Julie Staley-Rodriguez of Sky Harbor, the north runway (8-26) is currently closed and all operations are utilizing the two south runways. The local news has reported that the passengers will be placed on another aircraft for the flight to ELP once the rescreening is complete.
