Officers with the Scottsbluff Police Department are investigating a late Tuesday morning incident in the 2200 block of Second Avenue.

Sergeant Lee Pinet with the Scottsbluff Police Department says officers responded to a home shortly before noon after receiving a call about a masked man carrying a gun was in the area.

Pinet says when officers arrived at the home, they spoke to the caller who told them that the masked suspect had fled on foot.

Scottsbluff Police Captain Brian Wasson says that no suspect was found- and police are investigating to see if the incident was possibly fabricated by the caller.

Both Bluffs Middle School and Scottsbluff High School were on a ten minute lockout during the time of the incident. The lockout has since been lifted.
