A man is in custody after he threatened the Pawhuska School District and his place of work.
The Pawhuska Police Department says 20-year-old Justin Boone is in custody and has admitted to making the threats. Police Chief Nick Silva said the threats were specific, and that Boone was identified as the suspect by multiple witnesses.
On Facebook, Pawhuska Public Schools said that they had been notified of the threats Thursday morning.
Police Chief Nick Silva said Boone had access to weapons.
Pawhuska Superintendent David Cash is grateful for the new-found partnership between the school system and the police department. As reported earlier this month on KWON, members of the school district have radios that can connect instantly to the police department.
Boone is being held in the Osage County Jail for threatening acts of violence complaints.
