ODESSA – An Odessa Elementary School sheltered in place on Wednesday morning.
According to the Ector County ISD Facebook page, before the start of school a teacher at Burleson Elementary noticed a man walking across the campus, wearing a long coat and holding what looked to be a metal object.
The teacher then reported the man to the office as the teacher thought that metal object could be a weapon.
Ector County ISD police were contacted but no one matching the man's description was found in the vicinity.
The school spent about 20 minutes under shelter in place.
