Noose Found In Enid Locker Room Prompts Investigation

Posted: Updated:
ENID, Oklahoma -

Enid Public Schools confirms a noose was found hanging inside a visitor's locker room this week.

The district says middle school football players from Ponca City were using the locker room following a game, Tuesday night, when the noose was discovered. Enid Public Schools officials say the noose made from a USB cord was hanging in a shower stall.

One Ponca City parent says he had to explain to his 13-year-old son what a noose symbolizes. The noose has long been used as a form of racial intimidation.

News 9 is told both districts are now investigating. So far, the person who hung the noose has not been found.

Superintendents from Ponca City and Enid public schools released a joint statement that described the noose as "insensitive and unacceptable." The superintendent of Enid Public Schools didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
