Mc Bee Elementary was placed on a lock out earlier on Monday, according to the Austin Independent School District.
No students were at the school, as Monday was a staff development day. AISD says they were informed by the Austin Police Department that a suspect with a gun was possibly headed to the school. Staff was evacuated from the building and taken to a fire house located next door.
The school was cleared by police and staff were eventually let back into the elementary school.
