KENNEDALE (CBSDFW.COM) – Fellowship Christian Academy in Kennedale and Kennedale Junior High were put on lockdown Wednesday afternoon.

The Christian Academy told CBS11 there was possibly a person with a gun nearby.  As of 6:00 p.m., police on the ground and a DPS helicopter in the air, have not been able to locate the person.

Arlington Police said the incident began with a pursuit of four people in Arlington. Officers were trying to stop a stolen vehicle.

The pursuit ended near Bowman Springs and Tree Point with the people in the car bailing out.

Three people are in custody.  One person is still at large.

Officers found an empty gun magazine inside the car which led officers to believe that suspect is armed.

“I pass by here every Friday, hopefully they catch that person and nobody is harmed,” said one person following the activity on CBSDFW’s Facebook page as the Chopper 11 provided video on Facebook Live.

Some watching CBSDFW’s live feed have suggested they hope the three people in custody have told police who the fourth person is.

Around 5:00 p.m., Fellowship Christian Academy started releasing some students.  A short time later Kennedale Junior High began releasing students as well.  I both cases parents are having to show identification.
