Seal 1

24 September 2019

City of Lawton leadership was made aware of the attached memorandum for record (outlined in linked news story) in reference to a potential mass shooting on the morning of September 24, 2019, from the Fort Sill Criminal Investigation Division. It was relayed that this memorandum was intended to heighten situational awareness and was disseminated nationwide through the Department of Defense.


Though this threat is credible, it is not area specific.


City of Lawton public safety officials are aware of the situation and collaborating with partner agencies to monitor any new information or developments. Public safety and transparency remain topmost priorities for the City of Lawton.


Thank you.
