ODESSA - Another Odessa elementary school was forced to lock their doors on Friday morning but it turns out it was a false alarm.

It all started when two girls from Gonzales Elementary were on the school's playground.

They saw a man in an alley near the school go into a backyard carrying what they thought was a gun.

The girls reported it to a teacher and the school locked their outside doors.

Police found the man and it turns out he was actually carrying a meter-reader.
