Kay County, the Ponca City area, is colored red.

Police in a small town in northern Oklahoma say they've arrested a 13-year-old girl accused of plotting a mass shooting at a high school.

The Tonkawa Police Department says investigators executed a search warrant Sunday at the girl's home and seized weapons, ammunition and "personal writings" from the teen. The girl was charged as a juvenile with threats to perform acts of violence and is now being held in a youth detention center.
