ODESSA, TX (KWES) - An Odessa Middle School sheltered in place on Wednesday.

The Ector County Independent School District tells NewsWest 9, Wilson & Young Middle School spent 15 minutes under shelter in place.

ECISD Administrators say the shelter in place was issued after students reported seeing two men walking near the school and one of them appeared to have a gun.

The students reported the men to campus police and authorities searched the area but no one was ever found.

A shelter in place is a precaution taken to keep students and staff safe from something taking place near the school.
