NORMAN, Oklahoma -

There was an increased police presence at Norman North High School Tuesday after a student found a threat of a shooting written in the girls bathroom on Monday, and the boys bathroom on Tuesday. There was also a social media threat of a student holding a gun.

“The district was notified of that post by a parent and then it followed suit from there lots of students and people reporting that post,” said Sarah Jensen with the Norman Police Department.

Parents of students were notified about the threat with an automated phone call. Police tell News 9 the student has been identified and questioned and is not even in the state. He claims he only posted the picture as a prank.

“From that conversation we have determined that there is not a credible threat of violence,” said Jensen.

“We are dealing with 15 and 16 year olds,” said Joe Siano, the superintendent with Norman Public Schools, who says they are taking all the threats seriously.

“Our student body, along with us, should not tolerate when students interfere with their education through these types of actions,” said Siano. “Ninety-nine percent of the students come to school every day to go to school, enjoy school, and get the value out of education.”

It was chaos around the campus on Monday as many parents and students came to check themselves out of school, but it was business as usual Tuesday as most students attended class despite the threats. Both police and the district plan to press charges once the people who wrote the threats are identified.

“We deal in our business with young people that will make mistakes,” said Siano. “We have to recognize that, but there are certain behaviors that are not excusable. And there are certain lessons that have to be learned from those mistakes.”

And the superintendent says there will be internal consequences for the student who posted the gun picture. Norman police did present charges to the District Attorney’s office, but the Cleveland County DA has chosen not to charge him at this time.

Norman Public Schools are out for fall break the rest of the week.
