DETROIT (WJBK) -

Five people were arrested Tuesday in connection with the death threat against Detroit Police Chief James Craig.

The five people were arrested on unrelated charges, but Chief Craig says they are believed to have a connection to the source of the threat. The five people do not face charges for the threat.

The threat is believed to have been posted on Instagram, a photo sharing social media site. The picture is supposedly of a gun and is captioned, 'We need to clap him out,' referring to Chief Craig.

Yet, sources tell FOX 2's Taryn Asher no one has ever seen the original Instagram post, and that police found out about it while questioning a suspect connected to an unrelated crime.

The investigation continues into the source of the threat, and to if the post was taken down or ever existed in the first place.
