Accident causes lockdowns of Yuma schools

YUMA, Ariz. — Several schools in Yuma were briefly locked down Friday
morning as a result of suspicious circumstances surrounding a hit-and-run
automobile accident.

Police said the incident started when five people got out of a vehicle involved
in a collision and ran off. According to police, unspecified weapons were then
found next to a nearby building.

The schools were locked down as a precaution after police received calls
reporting a person seen running toward a high school.

Police say that person has been taken into custody and that authorities were
looking for the other people who ran from the car.

The school lockdowns have been lifted.
