Tulsa Public School teachers and students were at the Capitol when it was evacuated on Friday morning.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troopers say at 10:25 am a woman called 911 with a bomb threat saying multiple bombs would detonate at 10:30 in the morning at the Governor's Mansion and other locations.  OHP says Governor Fallin was notified and the Capitol was evacuated. 

OHP bomb techs swept the Capitol building and the Governor's Mansion with bomb dogs and no devices were found. The all clear was given just before noon. Oklahoma City police arrested the suspected caller and OHP investigators are interviewing the caller. 

A TCTA official says TPS students and teachers were at the Capitol for "Colonial Days" and are getting the presentations in buses outside the capital after being evacuated.
