A suspended UCO student is now formally charged with threatening to do harm at the school.

Oklahoma County Court Documents allege 19-year-old Kionte Allen used a campus computer to go to the social media site “Yik Yak” and posted, “I might shoot up UCO tomorrow, it depends on how I feel.”

It happened back in September. Area police agencies, as well as the FBI, have been investigating the incident.

Allen admitted to police to making the post. And he told investigators it was “to see the white man's reaction. I just wasn't thinking.”

UCO University Relations Vice President Charlie Johnson says Allen made a big mistake.

“We take that pretty seriously in this world, we really have to,” he said.
