Police: Elementary school sweep fails to turn up reported masked man
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —
Birmingham Police failed to find evidence of a masked man who had been reported entering Glen Iris Elementary school Thursday afternoon.
A fourth grader alerted a teacher after the student observed a man with a mask and dark clothing enter the school.
However, video surveillance did not capture the subject nor did a police sweep of the grounds. K-9 units were also called in to assist.
The children participating in after-school programs were ushered into the gym as a precaution.
