DEL CITY, Okla. - A man was arrested after he allegedly came to the Del City High School campus with a gun and made threats toward a former student.

Joseph Stewart was taken to jail on multiple charges for the act. Police say he was looking for a specific teenager but found the teen's friend instead.

"My son had dated Stewart's sister and he broke up with her and I gotten so many stories. I don't know what exactly what he was told but ever since then, he's been after my son," said Rebecca Russell, the student's mother.

Police say Stewart then displayed the gun and told the student he had a hit out for his friend.

Authorities were notified and police say they believe Stewart had every intention of carrying out the act.

But Russell believes more could have been done.

"They need to beef that up, you know, because there are other doors to this school and with them knowing who this kid is, there should have been more people up here watching for him," she said.
