MUSTANG, Okla. (AP) _ Students were dismissed about 1:30 p.m. Friday at Mustang High School after threatening messages were found in a school bathroom.

A message found Thursday threatened that people would ``die on the 13th'' and a note found in the same bathroom Friday said ``all preps must die.''

``There is no credible evidence to support this threat. However, in an overabundance of caution, we have dismissed Mustang High School students for the day and employed increased security at our other schools on the south side of the district,'' said school Superintendent Karl Springer.

The district's middle and elementary schools were placed on lockdown but were not dismissed early.

This is the fourth school scare in Oklahoma this week.

A 13-year-old Edmond middle school student and a 14-year-old Tulsa middle school student were arrested on complaints of taking BB guns onto campus in separate incidents Tuesday and a 15-year-old Tulsa high school student was arrested Wednesday after being found to have an inoperable .25 caliber pistol on campus.
