Twin Lakes Elementary was placed on a brief lockdown this morning after a suspect that police were chasing came onto the campus.

All of the school’s students were in the gymnasium for an assembly at that time, according to a message posted on the school district’s website.

School staff immediately locked down the building and the entire campus.

District officials said the suspect was unarmed and police apprehended him without incident.

Students and staff are safe and district officials will send parents a letter with more information this afternoon.
