AUSTIN (KXAN) - After being placed briefly in a lockdown, McCallum High School officials have lifted it Monday morning.
A bank robbery in that area at the Prosperity Bank at 1610 West North Loop triggered the lockdown while Austin police were on scene looking for the suspect.
APD Sgt. David Daniels said the call came in at 9:56 a.m., after a man displayed a weapon when he entered the bank and demanded money.
The man ran away heading north with an undisclosed amount of cash, and police are still patrolling neighborhoods looking for him. Authorities have enlisted the help of K-9 units and air support.
