The man who threatened to commit a mass shooting at Rogers State University in Claremore is out of prison.

Tywone Parks was sentenced to 10 years, but only served four.

Law enforcement sources tell us Parks is living with family in the Tulsa area.

Police first interviewed Parks at his Claremore apartment, after his neighbor reported a decapitated dog's head was left on her doorstep.

It was during that interview that police say they saw handwriting on Parks' wall detailing specific threats to decapitate a young woman and put her head in the freezer.

A closer look uncovered a plot to go on a shooting rampage at RSU.
