Friday afternoon, a whole street in the neighborhood near 151st Street and Harvard was blocked off as a precaution, and neighbors said they were asked by law enforcement to stay in their homes or leave the area.

Bixby West Elementary and Intermediate Schools were put on lockdown for a short time, out of an abundance of caution, the district said.

The FBI has taken over the case due to the recent Supreme Court ruling on tribal jurisdiction.

This is a developing story.
