MUSTANG, Okla. (KFOR) – Mustang General public Colleges officers resolved a post on social media pertaining to a faculty raffle allegedly supplying away an assault rifle amid the tragic school capturing in Texas.

The social media post claimed that Mustang Public Educational institutions launched a volleyball fundraiser, with the prize staying an assault rifle, all-around the time of the faculty shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 elementary students and two teachers lifeless.

University district officers say the assert is not real.

Officials explained a neighborhood booster group started off the fundraiser, not the district, and that the prize was under no circumstances a firearm but in its place a reward card to a community sporting items shop. The fliers, on the other hand, showed a rifle and talked about a gun raffle.

College officers say they contacted the boosters just after the taking pictures in Uvalde and asked them to stop the reward card raffle fundraiser. The boosters agreed and immediately concluded the raffle.
