UPDATE: Lockdown on Crestwood Elementary lifted; barricade suspect no longer in home

Local News

The soft lockdown briefly placed on Crestwood Elementary Friday was lifted when police discovered the suspect in the barricade situation was no longer in the home.  It all unfolded in a neighborhood near Charleston and Eastern.

According to Metro Police, the call first came in to the agency at 11:55 a.m.  Witnesses told police a man and a woman were arguing inside a home located at 1800 Franklin Avenue. 

Metro said the man was armed. When officers arrived at the scene, the man wouldn’t come out of the home so officers treated it as a barricade situation. 

Police interviewed the woman and discovered that the man left the home.

No other details were released.
