Bainbridge High School and nearby schools — Commodore Options and Ordway Elementary — were put in lockdown Wednesday afternoon after police received a report of a suspicious person in the area.
No other details were immediately available.
Officials are advising people to avoid the area until further notice.
Police Chief Matthew Hamner was seen arriving at Bainbridge High and going inside just before 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Multiple police cars were stationed outside Bainbridge High and Commodore, and news helicopters circled overhead as parents tried to get to the schools.
One said a student had texted that said they were in lockdown but had not been given a reason why.
