Armed road rage suspect led to lockdown at two Round Rock schools


ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — A lockdown of Hopewell Middle School and Union Hill Elementary School has been lifted following a police search for an armed road rage suspect.

Officers were searching for the suspect in the area of Perch Trail and Bass Loop in Round Rock. They say the suspect, who officers have identified, ran from the scene on foot. They found his weapon in the backyard of a home.

The armed driver was found and pulled over by officers, but he then ran off. He remains on the loose. An initial call to police indicated a man was pointing a gun at another driver.

Round Rock police have not released the name of the suspect.

The two schools are located on Gulf Way, just northeast of the police activity. At around 4:20 p.m., roads were reopened and the lockdowns were lifted.
