PAULS VALLEY, Okla. (KXII) -- Garvin County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 14-year-old girl on Thursday after they say she made threats at a school.

Garvin County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 14-year-old girl on Thursday after they say she made threats at a school.

Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes said the girl threatened to shoot up the Whitebead School, just outside of Pauls Valley.

Rhodes said when investigators questioned the girl, she admitted to threatening to bring a gun to the school and shoot people in the front office, but the girl said she never truly planned on hurting anyone.

Rhodes said deputies immediately went to the girl's home, and they said there were no weapons in the home.

Rhodes said his office takes these kinds of threats seriously because there have been so many school shootings just this year.

"We're going to take these matters seriously," Rhodes said. "They're going to get investigated and we're going to assess the threat."

Rhodes said a deputy was at the school all day Friday to ensure student and staff safety.
He says it's now up to the District Attorney if the girl will be charged.
