Odessa Police Searching for Runaway Felon 4/9/13
UPDATE: 3:00 P.M.
Mike Adkins of ECISD just issued this statement:
At about 1:25 p.m. Hays Elementary went into shelter-in-place because the Odessa Police Department was chasing a suspect who ran from a traffic stop.
A few minutes later the school was advised to lockdown but within a few minutes that move was deemed unnecessary and ECISD police began the process of releasing the lockdown.
Shortly before 2:00 p.m. the lockdown was over and the shelter-in-place was cleared ten minutes later. The students and the staff at the school were not threatened and they did a very good job of handling the situation.
ODESSA - Odessa Police are searching for a person who fled the scene of a traffic stop on the 900 block of Snyder St.
The person, wanted for felony probation violation, took off on foot and the police have set up a perimeter to search the area.
Nearby Hays Elementary has been alerted of the search being conducted in the area.
Stay tuned for more information.
