Authorities reportedly thwarted an alleged plot for a mass shooting and double suicide at a Pawnee County school.

A contingent of law enforcement officers arrested two juveniles on Tuesday following a tip that they planned to carry out a mass shooting at Pawnee Public Schools before killing themselves, Pawnee County Sheriff Mike Waters told The Cleveland American.

Attempts by the Tulsa World to contact the sheriff’s office and the Pawnee Police Department for comment were unsuccessful Thursday evening. Read more from the Tulsa World.
