The 911 call came about 8:40 a.m. As a precautionary measure, Edison Elementary School, 5830 S. Pine St., was placed on lockdown.
Nobody saw a gun, but someone reported hearing a shot and seeing a man walk south on Pine Street.
"There was possibly a shot heard outside the building," police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
