A passerby saw a man dressed in fatigues and carrying a gun right outside Oak Ridge Elementary. It turns out the gun was only a BB gun, but it made for some tense moments at Oak Ridge Elementary. The principal immediately ordered a lock down at the school.
It's not clear what the man was doing near the school or what, if any, intentions he may have had. Deputies arrested him on an outstanding warrant and whisked him away for questioning.
Bellevue Middle School was also locked down early Wednesday morning as Tallahassee Police chased a burglary suspect in that neighborhood. In both incidents, the men were caught and classes continued without interruption.
