Lehman High School initiated a voluntary temporary lockout this afternoon in response to a nearby burglary suspect fleeing from the 100 block of Hiver in the Meadows of Kyle neighborhood.

According to a press release from the City of Kyle two males were identified fleeing from the scene of the burglary, one was apprehended by Kyle Police officers and is currently in custody and the other was seen fleeing on foot and is possibly armed.

The second suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his late teens or 20s who residents reported to KPD shortly after a perimeter was established was seen jumping fences to avoid capture.

According to the press release a lockout is “a very routine procedure whenever there’s a situation near a school and just means that all doors are locked and no one can enter or leave, but the school day continues as usual.”

According to the press release at this moment the Hays County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit is on scene with KPD and they are conducting house-to-house and yard-to-yard searches for the second suspect.

Anyone with information about this situation should call 911 or contact KPD at 512-269-0895 or 512-268-3232.

Do not attempt to engage this individual; it’s important to allow police to do their job.
