An elementary school in Hawaiian Gardens was placed on lock down Wednesday morning as members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Special Weapons Team searched for a possible armed suspect involved in a domestic violence incident.
The incident took place at the 12000 block of Brittain Street in Hawaiian Gardens when Lakewood Sheriff’s Station personnel searched for the suspect who was possibly armed.
After landing on the athletic field of Hawaiian Elementary School, 12350 East 226th Street, Sheriff’s Air Rescue-5, with paramedics on board, staged on the field. The school was placed on lock-down.
Students inside Hawaiian Elementary School were in the middle of taking a state mandated test, according to officials at the ABC Unified School District.
No students at Hawaiian Elementary School were ever in “harms way” school officials told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper.
“At approximately 10:00 this morning, after a search of the home, it was determined the suspect was not inside,” said Lakewood Sheriff’s Deputy Guillermina Saldaña.
If members of the community have any additional questions or information regarding the circumstances that led up to the search please contact Lakewood Station watch commander at (562) 623-3500.
