COPPERAS COVE, TX (KXXV) -

The Copperas Cove ISD said the lockdown has been lifted on Junior High and Mae Stevens Early Learning Academy.

The school district said a strong police presence will remain in the neighborhood area through the remainder of the afternoon.

The schools were under a lockdown because a car was stolen near the high school and that a firearm was taken. 

Both schools were put on lockdown out of precaution while authorities searched for the suspect.
