Lockdown Lifted At Burbank High School, Burglary Suspect In Custody

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.
