The Tulsa Police Department arrested a high school student on Thursday after what turned out to be a bogus active shooter call.


Dispatchers received the lone 911 call around 11 a.m. about an active shooter at Nathan Hale High School. The caller said they were hiding in a closet while a man walked around the school with an AK-47.


Tulsa police officers along with several other law enforcement agencies responded to the call and the school was placed on lockdown. Officers began clearing the halls of the school while an investigation into the lone caller got underway.


At the time of the call, the phone showed to be on campus. After clearing the school, the 16-year-old Nathan Hale student was identified and taken into custody.


The high schooler was taken to the Tulsa County Community Intervention Center and charged with a state misdemeanor of 63 § 2870 False alarm.
