Police cars surround Union High School in south Tulsa after the school was locked down this afternoon.
Tulsa, Oklahoma -
Union High School is no longer on lockdown after officials determined a report of gunshots at the school was a hoax.
The school went into lockdown around 1:45 p.m.
The Tulsa County Sheriff’s office reports that an AT&T operator alerted law enforcement that she had received an internet call placed from a person claiming to be a Union Student. The caller gave information suggesting that there were two individuals in the building, one with a gun and one with a bomb. The caller indicated that they had heard shots and heard a large amount of screaming coming from an area within the school.
The lockdown was lifted about 45 minutes later after officers determined the call was a hoax.
Classes are now back in session and students will be dismissed as usual at 3:25 p.m., officials said.
