September 11, 2019 | Headlines

PONCA CITY —  Ponca City Police Department has confirmed that the post that started the local worry and talk about a school shooting, is a re-post of a Snap Chat that was investigated in 2018 by the Enid Police Department and determined to be no legitimate threat.

“We are trying to run down the origin of the Re-Post last night. If we can develop enough information to charge anyone, we will,” said Capt. Randy Tyner. “The safety of our students and staff in Ponca City is of the utmost importance to us, and  we will take all threats seriously and investigate them fully.”
