MOORE, Oklahoma -Moore police have a juvenile student in custody following an investigation into a bomb threat made against the Moore High School, on Friday.
Moore High School, located at 300 N. Eastern Avenue, was evacuated just before 11:30 a.m. Friday. Sgt. Jeremy Lewis with Moore police told News 9 that someone made a threat against the school. He said it was more than a typical bomb threat. It was more specific.
Officers went inside the building, but they have not found anything suspicious. Some officers searched the school while others investigated the threat.
E. Main is shut down in the area as police investigate the threat. Eastern remains open.
At about 12:30 p.m., Moore police confirmed that they have a juvenile student in custody. The suspect told police he sent an email threat, but it was a hoax. That student's identity has not been released.
Officers are sweeping the school as a precautionary measure.
All teachers and students have been evacuated, and they are safe. Police are urging parents not to come to the school to pick up their children. If parents feel strongly that they need to pick up their children, they can go to the Moore Central Church of Christ, according to police.
