The Austin Police Department responded to McBee Elementary School on Monday afternoon following an aggravated assault incident.

According to police, a man with a weapon got into a physical altercation with a female in the 10300 block of FM 2222 around 11:23 a.m. before leaving to pick up his child at the school.

Austin ISD said the school was put on a lockout, which means they lock everyone inside but continue business as usual.

No children were at the school due to it being a teacher training day. The building was cleared by APD and AISD Police.

The child the suspect was looking to pick up and all school personnel are safe.
