10/31/02 Tulsa, OK—Details remain sketchy as the investigation continues into the shooting of a Tulsa high school student by a Security Guard. Early indications are that an armed Security Guard was attempting to shoot another student who may have had a weapon; however, he missed his intended target and accidentally shot another student across the street. The bullet apparently struck that student’s mobile phone sending fragments into his face but not penetrating his body.

This incident has caused several agencies to look into the school’s practice of contracting with a private firm to furnish armed Security Guards, the policies in place for use of deadly force, and the level of training specific to schools that is provided.

This shooting follows closely after a student shot his fellow student in New Jersey and a university student in Arizona shot and killed three professors before taking his own life.

Return to this site for updates as they become available.

UPDATE

Tulsa Police are recommending that no charges be filed against the Security Guard involved in the this incident. The Tulsa School District is reviewing its policy on training required of the Pinkerton Guards who provide security services for their campuses.

In an unrelated incident another Tulsa student was shot, stabbed 15 times and had his thumb cut off during the evening hours of October 31, 2002. A 19 and a 20 year old are in custody.
