Lockdown lifted at Riverdale Elementary following police pursuit

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (WMC) - Riverdale Elementary School was locked down as Germantown Police Department searched for suspects Tuesday morning.

Germantown officers saw a man in the area of Howard McVay Park wearing a mask and gloves just before 4 a.m. The man ran away when police approached. Officers also found a stolen vehicle parked on McWay Manor Cove and detained a woman who was inside.

Officers were able to take the man into custody at 6:30 near Poplar Pike and Burfodi Lane. A third person was seen on surveillance footage in the area yet--that person has not been found. He was seen wearing a white shirt, black sweat pants and a light-colored backpack.

The school was placed on lockdown as a precaution. It’s since been lifted.

Germantown Municipal School District said no tardies will be issued for any school in the district Tuesday.
