MUSTANG — A Mustang High School student was arrested Wednesday after the school officials were notified of threats made against other students, the Mustang police said.
The student, whose name and age were not released Wednesday evening, was arrested in his home on a felony complaint of planning or endeavoring to commit a violent act, Mustang police Detective Camie McNeil said.
About 3:40 p.m. Monday, Mustang High School administrators were told a student said he was planning to harm himself and others on the last day of school. Administrators told the student’s parents about the threat and told them to keep the student at home while the matter was being investigated, the Mustang Public Schools Superintendent Sean McDaniel said in a statement.
Mustang police began investigating the threat Tuesday morning and determined the threat was credible, McNeil said.
The student was taken to the juvenile detention center in Canadian County, McNeil said.
“Although any situation where a student threatens harm against himself or others is alarming, I would like to offer my thanks to the students, staff and the Mustang Police Department. The process worked. The threats were taken seriously and action was taken. We are blessed in this district to have wonderful school resource officers and quality departments behind them,” McDaniel said.
Mustang Public Schools’ last day is May 23.
