School Called Off after Verdigris Murder

Town of Verdigris

School is closed. One man is dead. Police are looking for the victim's son. This is all unfolding in the Rogers County town of Verdgris, south of Claremore.

Authorities say the school district opted to close today, out of an abundance of caution, as law enforcement search for the suspect. The discovery was made at a home, not far from the school buildings, just before seven this morning. 

Authorities are still on the scene and details are sketchy.
