Darien police warned residents to stay indoors and schools were delayed as officers searched for a man with a gun along Tokeneke Road Wednesday morning.

The man walked into a restroom at the service area on the northbound side of Interstate 95 this morning and displayed a handgun, according to police. The man, who was wearing camouflage shorts, then ran off, heading along the railroad tracks toward Norwalk.

Darien school administrators were notified of the search and decided to put Darien High School and Middlesex Middle school on lockout as a precaution, according to a statement on the Darien Public Schools website.  All elementary schools were also put on a 90-minute delay.

Just past 8 a.m., school administrators were told the situation was all clear and that the lockout could be lifted.
