Avondale schools locked down during police search
Submitted by Rachel Trott on Tue, 02/04/2014 - 12:00am
Lattie Coor Elementary School and Estrella High School in Avondale were both put on lockdown Monday afternoon while police searched for two burglary suspects, officials said.
“Just after 11:40 a.m., there were two suspects attempting to burglarize a home in the area,” said Sgt. Brandon Busse, a spokesman for the Avondale Police Department. “They fled the area and one ran onto Lattie Coor’s campus.”
Police did not believe that the suspects had weapons or that Lattie Coor’s pupils were in any danger, but still searched the campus as a precaution, Busse said.
