EL RENO, Okla. – Two El Reno schools were placed on lockdown due to a verbal threat.

The lockdown took place around 1:30 p.m. Friday at both Etta Dale Junior High School and El Reno High School.

The threat was investigated by the El Reno Police Department.

Around 2 p.m., El Reno Public Schools gave the all clear.

ERPS said buses would go on with their routes with the possibility of some delays.

Superintendent Craig McVay later issued a statement, saying the lockdown ensued after a group of people drove by in a car and yelled they were going “bring a gun and kill them all” to some students.

McVay said the people in the car have been turned over to El Reno police.

No other details have been released at this time.
