Turlock High School lockdown lifted after police arrest suspect

Turlock High School and other schools nearby were on lockdown after police were searching for a possible armed suspect on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Turlock Unified School District.

At approximately 2:30 p.m. Turlock police officers spotted three people who matched the description of  call they received earlier about the"brandishing of a gun." Two of the suspects stopped, while one fled the area.

Police then established a perimeter in the area of Colorado and E. Marshall, leading to Turlock Unified School District and Sacred Heart Elementary School to initiate lockdown procedures.

At almost 4 p.m., police located and arrested the 17-year-old suspect who they found hiding in a garbage can, which eventually led to the lockdown being lifted.

The suspect had an outstanding Juvenile Hall warrant, according to police.
