Chisolm Trail Elementary put on soft lockdown

Local

Chisolm Trail Elementary on South Wheat Road in Belton ISD was put on soft lockdown for a time Friday morning as a precaution because of law enforcement activity in the area.

Soft lockdown means that the outside entrances to the building are secured but all activity goes on normally inside the school.

The action was taken after a vehicle being pursued out of WIlliamson County was abandoned near FM 1670 and I-14.

Williamson County deputies and the Department of Public Safety had been in pursuit of the vehicle.

The driver left the vehicle and fled on foot and a search was underway in the area for him.

There was no indication that there was any direct threat to the school or the students there.
