MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) -

A man with a machete prompts a lockdown at a Mechanicsville elementary school.

That lockdown only lasted about ten minutes, and students at Washington-Henry Elementary were never in danger.

Turns out the man was part of a surveying crew, and he was not on school property. He was spotted as students were loading the buses.
