"We stopped a car for a traffic violation and the passenger decided he didn't want to stick around so he fled on foot to the area near the schools," Craddock said. "They (school officials) saws us trying to round him up and locked down the schools."

Craddock said the passenger that fled is a hispanic male in his early 20s wearing dark clothing. He has not been apprehended. 

"As far as we know he is unarmed and he is not a threat," Craddock said.
