It started off as a normal school day at Jane Long Elementary, but things quickly changed after a 911 call to police, saying someone was on school grounds with a gun.

The elementary school quickly went into lock down, with parents showing up wanting to see their children.

Police received a name and photograph of the subject, which led them to Elkins Davis. Davis was taken into custody shortly after being identified.

Davis spoke to KTAB's reporter Kimberly Sears about what happened. He says he went to school to sign out his daughter. Currently, Davis and his spouse are in a custody battle over their daughter.

When Davis found out that his daughter wasn't at the school, he left the school and went home. A little while later, police showed up at Davis' home.

He was shocked to see them because Davis says he had no idea that he school had gone into lock down after he left.

Davis says he didn't bring a gun onto school campus and would never hurt any children there. He said, "I ain't no monster."

Davis did apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused parents and says he is sorry.

He was arrested for misdemeanor terroristic threat and misdemeanor evading detention. Davis' bond is set at $60,000.
