Lakeland Police Search for Armed Subjects

Date of Release:  9/315

Location:  940 Golden Rule Court

Time:  1240 Hrs

LPD Event:  15-17844

 

Lakeland Police responded to 940 Golden Rule Court on 9/3/15 at approximately 12:40 hours after a call from a resident.  The resident stated that two black males had knocked at the front door – when there was no answer they went to the back of the house.  When the two were confronted by the occupant of the residence at the back of the residence they pointed a gun at him and then fled.

Lakeland Christian School was placed on lock down until approximately one hour until police units arrived to stand by at the school.  Lakeland Christian School is now on soft lock down with officers there working to coordinate an exit plan that will not interfere with the search.

Dixieland Elementary is on lockdown at this time.

Police continue to search for the suspects.

One of the black males was wearing a white tank top and one was wearing a black doo rag. 

This release will be updated as information becomes available.
