    According to Carrollton police, officers were searching for an man who kicked in a fence at a home along the 1900 block of Lawndale Drive. 

    The homeowner was home at the time and said the man may have been armed.  For a short time, several streets in the area were blocked off while a helicopter from the Texas Department of Public Safety assisted in the search.

    As a precaution, the campuses of R.L. Turner High School, McLaughlin-Strickland Elementary, Central Elementary and Perry Middle School were placed on lock down.
