2 In Custody For Threats To Jenks School
JENKS, Oklahoma - Jenks Police arrested two men they say threatened to shoot up the Jenks Freshman Academy in a Snapchat video.
The arrest report says an unnamed girl posted the video saying she wanted 19-year-old Zion Durham and an unnamed man to come to the school to carry out a shooting and that she would let the men into the building.
The arrest report says a student showed a teacher Tuesday afternoon the Snapchat video the men had made in a parking lot on school property.
The arrest report says video showed the men were armed with a loaded pistol and a long gun or rifle. It says the men pointed the guns at the camera.
The report says the teacher called police, who secured and searched the campus.
Officers say they found Durham and the other man in a truck at Jenks Central Park and arrested them.
The arrest report says the two guns seen in the Snapchat video were in the truck.
The arrest report says security cameras showed the men walking around the Freshman Academy campus.
In an email sent to parents of Jenks High School and Freshman Academy students, officials said they were made aware of a potential threat to the safety and security of the students and staff members.
The men are facing several complaints, including conspiring to perform an act of violence and possession of a firearm.
There’s no indication about what repercussions the girl who posted the video might face or who the unnamed man is.
The district tells News On 6 it cannot release any more details right now because it's still investigating.
Officials say that Jenks Campus Police and the Jenks Police Department worked together to arrest the individuals. Law enforcement says there is no evidence of any remaining threat.
