Two Pinellas Park schools on brief lockdown while armed man was nearby

Two Pinellas Park schools were briefly locked down Monday after an an armed suspect was seen in their area.

Pinellas Park Police spokesman Sergeant Adam Geissenberger said Cross Bayou Elementary School and Pinellas Secondary School were both on lockdown Monday afternoon after a report of an armed man in the 9900 block of 66th Street North.

Police officers responded to a call of a domestic disturbance, and when an armed man fled the scene they notified both schools, which were closest to the scene.

Geissenberger said the armed man was in police custody by 2:20 Monday afternoon.

Schools determine when to end a lockdown.

"Usually it happens immediately following our notification," Geissenberger said.
