Police investigating social media threat

Ponca City Now - September 11, 2019 7:58 am

The Ponca City Police Department was made aware of a social media post last night referencing the possibility of a shooting at the high school today.

“We take all talk or threats of this nature seriously,” Captain Randy Tyner said. “Ponca City Officers have been working on investigating the post during the night, and at this time believe it to be a copy cat from a post in another community.

“Our Officers will continue to run down any leads or new information and we will have an increased presence at the school today. We have been in contact with Ponca City Public Schools already this morning and made them aware of what we know at this time. We will release any new information as we have it.”
