Reporter: Paul Cavanaugh

A lot of excitement went down outside H.I. Johnson Elementary School in Royal Palm Beach Thursday morning after an alligator was spotted there.

Sheriff and wildlife officials were called in to capture the gator and get it back to the Everglades or at least away from people.

The gator was spotted close to the school entrance which is a pathway where kids use to walk to school.

Luckily, it did not cause problems for kids trying to make it into school Thursday at H.I. Johnson Elementary in the Royal Palm Beach area.
