Man found whose search prompted Rutherford school lockdowns

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Officials in Rutherford County say the man for whom a search Tuesday afternoon prompted a precautionary lockdown at two nearby schools has been found.

The man is now receiving treatment at Middle Tennessee Medical Center, according to the sheriff's office.

Buchanan Elementary School and Whitworth-Buchanan Middle School were placed on a precautionary lockdown as Rutherford County sheriff's deputies and the Tennessee Highway Patrol looked for the man, who was described as suicidal and carrying a 20-gauge shotgun.

A Rutherford County Schools spokesman said dismissal of the two schools was delayed while police were nearby, and extra security monitored the dismissal at the end of the school day.
