A middle school on Midway Drive in Temple was placed on lockdown by police Thursday as they searched the area for a suspect.

According to a report from our news partners at KWTX, Temple PD's search was concentrated along a creek behind Smith Supply Co. in the 5200 block of Midway Drive. Officers found their suspect, who police say is named in a parole warrant, at approximately 1:15 p.m. The suspect's name was not released.

Bonham Middle School is also located on Midway Drive in close proximity to the area that authorities were searching. In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, police asked that the school go on lockdown.

With no one being allowed in or outside of the middle school, law enforcement focused their efforts on finding their suspect.

Students only returned back from winter break on Tuesday, and it seems that 2021 is not starting off any easier than 2020. At least they were safe inside the school as police conducted their search.
