GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — Police activity in Germantown forced a local elementary school to temporarily lockdown Tuesday.
At 4 a.m. officers said they spotted a man wearing a mask and gloves in the area of Howard McVay Park. He fled the scene when police tried to approach, forcing officers to begin a search of the area. It was during that search that police said they located a stolen vehicle on McVay Manor Cove and detained a woman inside.
The suspect who fled authorities was captured around 6:30 a.m. near Poplar Pike and Burfodi.
A third suspect has yet to be apprehended.
Police said they notified the Germantown Municipal School District, who subsequently placed Riverdale Elementary on lockdown. That lockdown was lifted just before 9 a.m.
The school said tardies would not be issued by the school today for those coming in late.
