Oklahoma City Police are investigating after a ball boy for the Oklahoma City Thunder allegedly tweeted death threats to Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley.

The Houston Chronicle says the tweet was directed at Beverley's Twitter name and said "I'm coming to kill you." Beverly is the player that collided with Thunder Guard Russell Westbrook- resulting in Westbrook's injury

The ball boy later posted an apology and said his account was hacked. All of those tweets have since been deleted.

The Thunder said in a statement they do not condone his comments and the matter will be handled internally.
