This update comes following the incident Friday of a social media post that a former Luther student was involved in a thread that said they wanted to  “shoot up the school.” The Tulsa office of the FBI is investigating.
Chief Randall said on Friday that the FBI and authorities had been in touch with the grandmother and friends of the suspect, but could not find the former student.
Luther students return to classes Monday following Spring Break. No individuals were named in the threat.
