‘Suspicious message’ left over the weekend at Moore junior high school
OKLAHOMA CITY – A Moore junior high school was put on lockdown after police say a counselor received a ‘suspicious message.’
Shortly before 12 p.m., officers were called to Brink Junior High School.
Authorities say the voicemail was left on a counselor’s phone on Sunday, but was discovered Monday morning.
As a precaution, the school was placed on lock down.
On Monday afternoon, officers said they did not believe the message was a credible threat.
“As always, the safety of our students and staff is our most important consideration. We apologize for any undue concern, but we are committed to making sure that we evaluate events fully and act judiciously as we provide for the protection and security of our students and staff,” Joseph Ross, the principal at Brink Junior High, said in a statement.
