Honolulu school under lockdown for 45 minutes

- Associated Press - Friday, January 17, 2014

HONOLULU (AP) - A Honolulu elementary school was briefly under lockdown as police searched the area for an armed man.

Honolulu police spokeswoman Michelle Yu says police are searching Friday morning for an armed man.

Kauluwela Elementary School Principal Clayton Kaninau says the lockdown lasted about 45 minutes. He says police told him it was prompted by a fight at the nearby Times Supermarket at Liliha Square, where a handgun was possibly seen.

He says all was calm while police did a sweep of the school, as students and teachers remained in their classrooms. He says police also searched a nearby park.

State Department of Education spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz says officials are gathering information about what happened.
