LEWISVILLE, Texas - A man accused of shooting his mother and fleeing with his 6-year-old son in Sand Springs Tuesday night taught at Glenpool High School last year, officials confirmed Wednesday.
Robert Connor III taught Spanish at Glenpool during the 2012-2013 school year. Administrators said Wednesday they had no reason to believe he was dangerous or mentally ill, as one of Connor's uncles asserted following his arrest.
Connor was taken into custody at a Lewisville, Texas hotel around 7:30 a.m. He was believed to have abducted his son, Decklan Connor, from a home northwest of Sand Springs after shooting the child's grandmother, Deborah Connor.
