Multiple agencies assisted at the scene including the Pampa Police Department, the Texas Department of Public Safety, Pampa EMS, Pampa Fire , Pampa EOC, Gray County Constable, Ochiltree County Sheriff’s Office.

Pampa ISD said on Facebook that a lock out means that students will do business as usual inside, but no one will be allowed to enter the campus until police on the scene say there is no threat of danger.

After 5 hours, the subject came out without incident or injury and was taken for a preliminary evaluation.
