Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento was on lockdown Wednesday afternoon.
Justin Brown is with the Sacramento Police Department. He says police responded to a call of three people breaking into a vehicle near the school.
"When we arrived on scene, we detained two. One suspect, a man, fled on foot," says Brown. "While he was fleeing, he entered a residence that was occupied by people and he continued to run. Our officers quickly arrived in the area and we established a perimeter. The suspect was taken into custody."
The Sacramento Unified School District says it does not appear the suspect was ever on school grounds.
