ODESSA, TX (KWES) - One Ector County ISD school was placed under lockdown on Tuesday morning.

Ector County ISD administrators said Burnet Elementary was under lockdown for about 15 minutes after Odessa police notified the school to warn them of a possible armed man in the school.

Administrators said the report turned out to be false and the man in question was a parent who came to the office and was unarmed.

No students or faculty were injured due to the lockdown.
