School officials locked down Heritage Elementary early Thursday morning after a suspicious man was found wandering the campus.
Donald Porter, spokesman for Bibb County schools, confirmed to 13WMAZ that a Heritage staff member saw the man and contacted campus security but did not see a weapon.
A suspicious vehicle was also seen on campus, Porter says.
Campus police put Heritage on a preventive lock-down and confronted the suspicious man, who fled the campus into the woods.
The school grounds and the surrounding neighborhoods were searched until police determined the vehicle and individual were no longer in the area.
The lock-down was lifted by 8:35 a.m.
The school did have campus police on heightened security throughout the day as kindergarten through second grades celebrated Field Day outside.
