Man with handgun spotted on Tucson school campus

PICTURE ROCKS - Two schools on Tucson's northwest side were locked down for about two hours after a school official reported seeing a man with a handgun on campus.


Pima County Sheriff's officials say they were still searching for the man by ground and air Wednesday.

Sheriff's spokesman Tom Peine (Py-NAH) says all students are safe and the suspect is no longer on the school grounds.

After the man was spotted on campus, he reportedly jumped a fence and ran toward the Picture Rocks Community Center.

Desert Winds Elementary and Picture Rocks Middle School were locked down as a precaution about 10 a.m. The lockdowns were lifted just before noon.
