OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma school district says police are investigating following a threat at a local high school.
On Wednesday, officials from the Moore Public School District alerted parents to a threat at Westmoore High School.
According to the alert, a student showed other students a picture of himself holding a handgun and told his classmates not to come to school tomorrow.
