Man acting strangely triggers lockdown of Las Vegas schools

Updated December 13, 2018 - 3:12 pm

Woolley and Clyde Cox elementary schools were placed on hard lockdowns around 1:20 p.m. on Thursday following a report of an unknown man acting erratically, according to Clark County School District police.

Capt. Roberto Morales said the man was on the Woolley campus causing a disturbance, but the lockdown also was extended to Clyde Cox, which is next to Woolley near North Pecos and East Alexander Roads.

The lockdown was lifted about 30 minutes later, and Morales said police were dealing with the man.
