NORTH HILLS (CBSLA) — Two schools in North Hills, one of which is being used as a voting center, were placed on lockdown on Super Tuesday following reports of a man with a gun.

The Los Angeles Police Department was on scene searching for two of three suspects involved in a possible assault with a deadly weapon attack inside of a Target store on Balboa Boulevard.

One suspect was detained inside of the store, while two others remained outstanding, according to LAPD. Officers set up a perimeter as they searched for the other suspects.

Both Wendell Holmes Middle School and Dearborn Elementary schools were temporarily on lockdown due to the police activity, a Los Angeles Unified School District spokesperson confirmed.

Dearborn Elementary was being used as a voting center Tuesday. The voters were not impacted by the lockdown.
