OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma company says it has at least a partial solution to the epidemic of deadly school violence.  

OnAlert Guardian Systems says it's perfected a system that relies on sensors that operate by plugging each of them into a regular classroom wall socket. 

Company Spokesman Michael Tennyson says if a gunshot is fired in a school, those sensors will automatically know if, and even the caliber of gun used.  The system alerts 911 operators and law enforcement authorities immediately.

Tennyson says the first units will be installed in Yukon High School, Middle School, and an elementary school within the year.

"Once we get these things deployed here in Yukon schools, we'll be able to bring other law enforcement, other school districts here to show them how it works." 

Yukon Schools Superintendent Bill Denton says he's on-board. Each sensor though will come with at least a $250 price tag.
