Gun report prompts closure of northeast Oklahoma schools
Chavez was charged Friday with one felony count of planning to perform an act of violence. Court records do not list an attorney for Chavez, and calls to a number for Chavez listed in court documents went to a recorded message saying the line wasn't available. A court hearing is scheduled for Jan. 11.
A search of the home where Chavez lived with his mother uncovered a .22-caliber, semi-automatic rifle that had been converted into a “pistol grip type rifle,” according to a search warrant return filed Tuesday.
Police also seized marijuana and drug paraphernalia, two swords, a pair of brass knuckles and notes that Hastings has said were related to a planned attack. The search also revealed photos of several graduating seniors had been cut out of a newspaper insert and placed into a small black photo album, along with drawings entitled “RIP Graveyard” and “Suicidal Timmy.”
Police said no bomb-making materials were found at the home.
