Four DeKalb County schools were on lockdown Wednesday afternoon, according to the school district.

Officials say Snapfinger Middle School and three other schools in the area were put on lockdown between 2 and 3 p.m.

The school district said authorities tried to serve a search warrant in the area when the suspect resisted and locked themselves inside a nearby home.

Officials also held students at Canby Lane Elementary in Decatur after the lockdown due to the continued police activity.
