Car searched, student detained after anonymous tip

Oklahoma City Police Department officers have detained a possible suspect on campus after responding to an anonymous tip, said Cordell Jordan, media relations coordinator.

Jordan said the tip came in to Edmond police this morning, when an anonymous caller described an individual who possessed a gun and “needed to use it for some kind of initiation.”

After discovering that the person in question had a class at OCCC in room 3E4 of the Arts and Humanities building, OCPD officers were dispatched to campus, where they found a black male fitting the caller’s description, he said.

The suspect was detained for questioning and his car, a gold Oldsmobile, was later searched. No gun was found and the suspect was released from police custody shortly before 3 p.m.

Police are now investigating where the tip came from, Jordan said.

More updates will be added to this story as they become available.
