ODESSA - A big hoax with bad timing. Someone called Odessa Police about a gunman on Crockett Junior High's campus on Monday. Turns out it was all fake. But it couldn't have happened on a worse date: the 10th Anniversary of the Columbine massacre.
At around 1p.m. on Monday afternoon, an anonymous caller told police they saw somone running around their campus with a gun then they hung up. Odessa and E.C.I.S.D. police raced to the scene and put the school on lockdown, sending shockwaves across campus and leaving parents un-easy.
"Every exterior door and interior door is locked and no one moves," Mike Adkins, E.C.I.S.D. Director of Communications, said. "No one goes in or out or moves around the hallways. No one moves in or out of a classroom."
