Rep. Carlos Curbelo received a death threat earlier this week, according to a statement issued by the Florida Republican’s office Thursday.

The threat was made through social media. 

“Capitol Police was immediately notified and quickly identified the individual responsible,” Curbelo’s office said. “The Congressman’s home and our district office are being monitored by officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department.”

Curbelo has not altered his schedule. He is planning to participate in a Thursday evening forum with the Kendall Federation at which law enforcement will be present, his office said.
