HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Lakeside Schools in Hot Springs were on lockdown Wednesday morning, following an incident nearby.
Hot Springs Police Cpt. McCrary Means said there were some 'suspicious' people at a nearby gas station who were playing loud music in the parking lot. When police arrived, one of the men ran off into nearby woods. While officers searched for him, Lakeside schools went on lockdown as a precaution, according to Means.
Means said officers took the man into custody; he was not on school property and never showed a weapon.
No charges have been filed at this time, but Means said he could face 'fleeing from police' charges.
The Lakeside Schools Superintendent said there is a press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday to address any concerns or questions on this matter. THV 11 will be at the event and provide more information as it becomes available.
