TULSA – Nathan Hale High School was placed on a modified lockdown Tuesday temporarily as authorities investigated a social media message.

According to Tulsa Public Schools, police were called to the school to investigate the severity of the social media message. The student accused of posting the message was found and taken into Tulsa police custody.
