OWASSO, Okla. – A social media post prompted officers to investigate the safety of students at an Owasso school Wednesday.

The Owasso Police Dept. was called to investigate a post allegedly made by a female student at the Owasso High School that insinuated the possibility of school shooting. Not long after the statement was posted, authorities were able to locate the student and speak with her about the post.

Owasso police say that as a precaution additional officers were stationed around the school as police searched for the student.

The student in question has since been interviewed and police say she is cooperating with officers.

Because the student is a juvenile, police are not releasing her identity.
