On Tuesday, Ponca City Public School officials reported that a student at East Middle School was found in possession of a BB gun. The student was turned in to administration by another student.

Administration secured the BB gun without incident. The student did not present the gun in a threatening manner, so no one was harmed.

A School Resource Officer was called, and the student was arrested and removed from the building.

“Maintaining the safety and security of our students and staff is our highest priority,” said Bret Smith, Executive Director of Operations for Ponca City Public Schools. “We credit our teachers as well as our students for being aware of potential threats through training, procedures and effective communication. It is important for us to maintain transparency and to keep our community informed of situations to dispel inaccurate information.”
