Killeen police were dispatched to assist Killeen Independent School District police Thursday with an individual who was running around in the parking lot of Pershing Park Elementary and making his way into the school, police confirmed Friday.

The suspect was detained, police said. But it’s unclear if the man was arrested or on what charge.

“The man more specifically ran into the outer lobby of the school but could go no further because of the school’s security procedures regarding access to the student areas of the building,” said Terry Abbott, KISD spokesman.

The school was on lockdown for about 30 minutes.

When asked on Friday, neither KPD nor KISD could say whether the man was arrested or on what charge. | 254-501-7468
