FBI investigates Oklahoma casino concert threat

DURANT, Okla. (KXII) A threat made toward concertgoers at Choctaw Casino and Resort last week is now under investigation by the FBI. Casino oklahoma.

The threat was posted to Dwight Yoakam's Facebook page on Oct. 11, saying in part, "You think the shooting in Las Vegas by Stephen Paddock was senseless and horrific? Your concert in Durant is next."

Paddock killed 58 people at a concert in Las Vegas earlier this month, and Choctaw police said they weren't taking any chances.

Several Choctaw police cruisers were parked out back of the Casino Friday night.

Officers said they had increased their presence at the Dwight Yoakum concert because of the recent shooting.

Choctaw Police said at the time they were not aware of the threatening post, but Monday they confirmed there was a threat, which is now under investigation by the FBI.

The threatening comment has since been deleted and Yoakum’s concert went on without incident, but it raised concerns.

"You know they may not want to go out,” Denison resident Asher Underwood said.

“You've seen people, even in the comments from some of the social media posts it's making them think twice about going into public places and things of that nature."

Underwood said his friend sent him screenshot of the post, and that he found the account of the person who posted it.

"Profile picture they had posted a bunch of pictures of guns,” Underwood said. “The cover photo was a gun. Lots of guns. So that was kind of alarming to me."

Durant resident Melinda McPherson said she won't let this keep her from going to the casino, and she has faith in local law enforcement to keep the public safe.

"They're trained very, very well,” McPherson said. “They are very good at their job."

"Glad nobody was hurt,” Underwood said. “Nobody was injured. But it was close to home."

Choctaw police could not comment on whether they had any suspects in the case.

Requests for comment from Yoakum weren’t immediately returned.
