Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Three Corpus Christi Independent School District campuses were placed on partial lockdown Tuesday morning after reports of an individual waving around a gun in a nearby neighborhood.

The partial lockdown was initiated at Moody High School, Cunningham Middle School and Garcia Elementary at around 10:30 a.m. Police received a call reporting a subject waving around a gun in the area. The officers gave a description of the individual to the schools and proceeded to search the area.

The all-clear was given at around noon after police were unable to find anybody with a weapon in the area. The lockdown was lifted at the schools at that time.

However, officers did locate an individual with a warrant for his arrest after he tried to flee from police while they conducted their search.
