At approximately 2:55 p.m. on Oct. 30, Webster Broadcasting and Digital Media Magnet High School went on lockdown after at least one shot was fired toward the school, Gary Rudick, Tulsa Public Schools Campus Chief of Police, said.
Chief Rudick also informed that it was unclear as to whether the shots were fired at students or the building itself.
“The allegation is that it’s a shotgun, but it’s hard to say,” Chief Rudick said when asked about the weapon.
Webster Assistant Principal Mike Crase added that the shooter was not a Webster student.
Mr. Crase continued by saying that the teachers, security and administration acted very quickly to secure the safety of all the students at Webster.
The lockdown ended at approximately 3:40 p.m. when students were released to go to their seventh period.
“As of Monday, 11-2, the students and faculty should feel as safe as they did prior to the incident,” Mr. Crase said.
