    Jenks police say two men are in custody after a gun violence threat at Jenks Freshman Academy on Tuesday.

    Jenks Public Schools Police Department was alerted of a threat of gun violence at the school just before 1 p.m.

    When they showed up on campus, they were told someone showed a teacher a Snapchat of two men.

    The Snapchat was from a girl and said she wanted Zion Durham, 19, to come to the school and "shoot it up" and that she would let them into the building.

    The teacher recorded a video of a video Snapchat that showed Durham and the other man in the parking lot of the school armed with a black pistol. The video showed that the pistol magazine had bullets in it. The two men are also shown with a bolt action long gun or rifle, according to a booking report.

    The video has no sound, but shows Durham and the other man pointing the guns at the camera, then shows them in front of the school on school property with the guns.

    Officers immediately searched the campus for the two men and their Nissan truck.

    The Jenks Police Department was called in to help find the suspects. A few minutes later, officers found the truck at the Jenks Central Park and took Durham and the other man into custody.

    Officers found the guns from the video inside the truck.

    Surveillance video shows Durham and the other man on campus property walking around the Jenks Freshman Academy.

    The other suspect has not been identified at this time.

    Durham was arrested and booked into the Tulsa County Jail for conspiring or endeavoring to perform and act of violence involving serious bodily harm or death and felony possession of a firearm.
