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.

No injuries were reported.
