False Report of Weapon at Odessa High School 10/29/13
ODESSA - Administrators at Odessa High School received two tips this afternoon of students possibly in possession of a weapon. Administrators and ECISD police officers responded quickly and secured those students and searched them.
Police determined they did not have any type of weapon. One student, who police believe bragged of having a gun, was taken into custody for a False Report, which is a State Jail Felony.
Based on the information received, our officers and school administrators did not put the school into lockdown because they felt it was not necessary this time.
Once again, we commend those who sent in tips, and our administrators, officers,
teachers, and students who handled the situation very calmly and very quickly.
