Local School Locked Down



The Ponca City High School was placed on a precautionary lock down this morning after the Communication Center received a call from a motorist reporting a man walking by the Seventh Street Student parking lot had been seen carrying a long gun.  The call came in at 10:05am.

Several Officers responded to the area.  At least two other witnesses told officers they observed a man matching the description that Police had received initially, but did not observe him carrying a gun.  The lock down was lifted approximately 25 minutes after it was put into place.

Officers searching the area contacted a man matching the description, but found no gun.
