Woodruff said Owasso School Resource Officers located the 14-year-old suspect and removed him from class. Because of the age of the suspect, his name is not being released.

Owasso police say a CO2 powered pellet pistol was located inside the student’s backpack. He was placed under arrest on complaint of planning or threatening a violent act and taken to a juvenile detention center, say Owasso police.
