Intruder alarm accidentally sent out, Crooked Oak school officials say

OKLAHOMA CITY – School officials in one metro school district are investigating after an “intruder alarm” was sent out in error Thursday morning.

According to officials with Crooked Oak Public Schools, on Wednesday, it was reported that a high school student was going to bring a gun on campus.

Oklahoma City police and school officials investigated and determined it to be an unfounded threat.

Police tell News 4 a 16-year-old was arrested in the case for threatening an act of violence.

On Thursday, the school district made an accidental announcement over the intercom about an intruder on campus, causing a lockdown. School officials say the alarm was not about the threat that took place the day before.

All lockdowns have been lifted and there is no threat, police say.

Crooked Oak school officials released the following statement:

“Yesterday it was reported to us that a high school student was going to bring a gun on campus. We looked into the situation and involved OKCPD. It was determined to be an unfounded threat. Yesterday evening, new information was provided to the police and they took control of the case.

Earlier today, at approximately 8:10 am, our district intercom system sent out an intruder on campus alert. We took appropriate measures and went into lock down procedure. We then investigated the situation and found the campus to be secure.

The two situations were in no way related. At no time were students in danger. If you have any questions, please contact the school offices.”
