Ector County ISD School Placed Under Shelter-In-Place

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

An Ector County ISD school spent part of Wednesday afternoon under a shelter-in-place.

ECISD Administrators tell NewsWest9, Austin Montessori spent about 15 minutes under shelter-in-place after Ector County ISD police received notice that a break-in suspect fled from police officers and could be headed toward the school.

Administrators say the situation was quickly cleared and school has returned to its normal schedule.

A shelter-in-place means any students and staff outside of the school are brought back inside the building and all entrances are locked and monitored.
