Alto I.S.D. Placed On Lockdown

An East Texas school is in lock down after a juvenile accused in a weekend stabbing is thought to be near campus.  Officials say the campus at Alto I.S.D. in Cherokee County was in partial lock down for most of the day.  Officials say the suspect stabbed another juvenile yesterday.

Authorities say they were concerned for the safety of four witnesses, who attend Alto.   At 2:00 p.m., the sheriff's department got word that the suspect was near the school. The school was then placed on full lock-down. Then at 2:30 p.m., officials found out the suspect was actually at his girlfriend's house. Officials went there and arrested him.  The suspect is now charged with aggravated assault.
