Police lock down part of downtown Lafayette over reports of armed person
LAFAYETTE - A part of downtown Lafayette was placed on lockdown Wednesday morning after witnesses spotted what appeared to be a person with a gun atop a building.
KATC reports the situation began after police received reports of a person armed with a gun in a parking garage. A SWAT team and drones were called to check the roughly two-block area, which has since been cleared by police and sheriff's deputies.
Field trips from two different schools were reportedly visiting a nearby children's museum at the time of the lockdown.
No injuries have been reported.
