Muskogee Public Schools just put out this statement:

Out of an abundance of caution and due to an incident within the area the 8th & 9th Grade Academy at Alice Robertson, Irving Elementary, Rougher Alternative Academy, and Sadler Arts Academy have been put on Safety In Place at this time.

Safety In Place means no one is to come in or out of buildings during this time but students can move within the building.

The actions were taken in response to a shooting reported on Fondulac. The incident was far enough away from the school that the district isn’t worried it will endanger anyone from the schools, but were acting out of caution just to make sure.

No word yet on the shooting on Fondulac and whether anyone was hurt. We are waiting for a response from the police.

UPDATE 9:16 a.m.: Police just responded.

We do have a shooting victim that showed up at EMS central they are being transported to a Tulsa hospital. No suspect info and no idea yet where the possible crime scene is located. (The victim) is being uncooperative at this time. We are trying to determine if he is tribal.
