UPDATE: Soft lockdown for Temple ISD campuses ends; One suspect still at large

By: Stephanie Jacksis

TEMPLE - A soft lockdown imposed on several Temple ISD buildings is now over, but an armed suspect that caused the lockdown is still at large.

The lockdown was issued Friday after Temple Officers were notified of a burglary that just occurred on Lower Troy Rd., just north of the Temple city limits.

Police were able to locate the suspect vehicle near the 900 block of East Avenue H at around 2:08 p.m. and began their pursuit. The vehicle abruptly stopped in the 600 block of South 18th Street and the two suspects got out and fled on foot. One suspect remained in the car and was detained without incident.

"We have high motivation to catch anyone that's committing these burglaries and robberies," Sgt. Brad Hunt said.  "Anyone that may be running around armed, and is trying to get away from police... We're going to have high motivation to catch."

The two suspects who fled on foot were believed to be armed, as handguns and a shotgun were reportedly taken in the burglary. Officers from TPD. Bell County Sheriffs Office, and Texas DPS maintained a perimeter while officers searched on foot for the two possibly armed suspects. K-9 Units also assisted in the search.

The two loose suspects caused three TISD campuses to go into Soft lockdown. They were: Bethune Elementary, Meredith-Dunbar Elementary, and Wheatly Alternative School.

The lockdowns ended at 3:15 p.m.

One of the suspects has since been caught. He was arrested at 3:30 p.m. found hiding in a residence in the 500 block of South Henderson Drive. He was arrested without further incident.

One suspect remains at large, and may be armed. He was last seen wearing a white T-Shirt and blue jeans.

Police say this case is not linked to the recent string of robberies in the area.

If you have any information that could lead to an arrest, call Temple PD at 298-5500.
