Hays Elementary School spent nearly 30 minutes in a shelter-in-place on Wednesday after Odessa Police say that they received a call about a man with a gun in the neighborhood near the school.

OPD and Ector County ISD officers went to the school as a precaution.

According to a release, students and staff were not threatened in any way and were released from the shelter-in-place around 2:30 p.m.

A shelter-in-place means that all students who are outside are brought inside, and all outside doors are locked with no one entering or leaving the building.

School resumes inside the building as normal.
