A local Elementary School was placed on a partial lockdown Monday afternoon. Arkansas City Police were advised that there was a “person of interest” seen in close proximity to the grounds of IXL Elementary. All of the doors to the elementary school were locked, with the exception of the front doors, where the district placed personnel to ensure security. No child was left the building without direct adult supervision, and students only were released to the custody of a parent or guardian. So far, no additional information has been released, and no arrests have been reported in connection with the incident.
