A domestic situation forced Oakland Middle and High Schools to be placed on lockdown Thursday morning. Murfreesboro Police spokesman Kyle Evans tells WGNS that officers responded to 2583 Exeter Drive around 8am. There, a male subject was seen running from the area by police. Officers were told the subject was possibly armed with a knife or some type of cutting instrument and was seen running toward the Oakland schools. While searching the area, the subject was located at 2118 Patriot Drive and taken into custody by M-P-D. Evans says the domestic violence incident is being investigated.
Oakland Middle School and Oakland High School were briefly placed on Code Red lockdown Thursday morning while Murfreesboro Police searched the area for a fleeing suspect. According to James Evans, Spokesperson for the Rutherford County Schools, "Oakland Middle School and Oakland High School under a precautionary lockdown while MPD pursues suspect in the area. Only a precaution."
Seconds later Evans stated to WGNS, "They are back to code green now (which is normal status). It was precautionary. The schools will be notifying parents."
Again, the situation has been resolved.
