An extra police presence is expected at Shawnee High School in the coming days after a threatening message was scribbled on a girls' bathroom wall on Friday.

The threatening message came on the second day of the school year for Shawnee students and coincides with a trend of other school incidents in Oklahoma this past week, including a threat investigated at a Norman high school as well as a stabbing that injured a teen student at Luther Schools.

Friday's discovery prompted the district to contact Shawnee police, although the school wasn't placed on lockdown Friday afternoon.

Cherity Pennington, spokeswoman for Shawnee Public Schools, released a statement regarding the incident and it also was placed on the district's website. She said the same message was released to parents through phone calls.

“...Shawnee High School officials found a scribbled message on a girls’ restroom wall listing a future date for a school shooting with the message, 'you’ve been warned,'” the statement reads.

“High school administrative staff and police immediately began investigating this matter to determine if the threat was credible. Since the date indicated was in the future, it was determined that there was no immediate danger to our students or need to lock down the campus,” the statement continued.

Pennington indicated in the statement that the investigation is ongoing and includes the review of video footage of traffic in and out of the restroom in an attempt to determine a suspect or witness.

As a result of this situation, she said students and parents will notice an increased police presence on the SHS campus over the coming days.

“Once we conclude this investigation, we will follow up with any necessary information. We take all threats seriously and collaborate with our local police to ensure the safety of students and staff during these times,” the statement concludes.

Some parents commented on the News-Star's Facebook post for this story that they did receive an automated message. Any parents with questions about the notification system should contact the school district.

Shawnee Police Cpl. Vivian Lozano-Stafford issued the following Friday evening.

“The Shawnee Police Department and Shawnee High School Administration and staff are investigating a possible threat that was written on the girls restroom wall at the Shawnee High School,” she said.

“The creditability of the threat is still undetermined but the Shawnee Police Department takes every threat seriously and investigates them to the fullest,” she added. “Providing a safe learning environment for the students and staff is our top priority.”

She noted an increase of officers would be noticed at the school.
