Arrest Made at Ponca City West Middle School

A student at West Middle School was arrested Thursday afternoon for making terroristic threats.
Bret Smith, Executive Director of Operations, said the school was not locked down for safety reasons and the student was taken into custody without incident. “There was no threat to the school. A student made a threat to another single person in another school district over social media. That, in itself, is a threat of terrorism.”
The juvenile suspect was taken to the Police Station for questioning and the investigation is ongoing. There is no information indicating any other students were involved.
