Hall County robbery locked down 4 nearby schools

Posted: Updated:

A robbery at a Hall County bank locked down four nearby schools Wednesday.

Around 9:15 a.m., a man entered SunTrust bank on Mundy Mill Road with a gun and demanded cash.

He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran into nearby woods.

While police and K-9 units searched for the suspect, Oakwood Elementary, Johnson High School, and Academies of Discovery Charter School were placed on lock down.

University of North Georgia Gainesville was directed to shelter in place and classes were canceled.

K-9 units eventually lost the scent and authorities believe he may have gotten into a vehicle.
