An elementary school and a middle school in Norwich were in lockdown as police searched for someone they said fled during a motor vehicle stop.
The John B. Stanton Network Elementary School and the Teachers’ Memorial School were locked down for about an hour as a precaution. Students were not dismissed on time because of the lockdown.
Police said officers stopped a motorcycle and the man jumped off the bike and fled into the woods.
The lockdown was lifted around 4 p.m.
