A lockdown at two McKinney schools was lifted, children were picked up and a standoff at a nearby home, to which SWAT was called, ended peacefully Monday afternoon, police say.

An armed person fired "a few rounds" at about 2:45 p.m. in a neighborhood off Ridge Road just south of U.S. Highway 380, McKinney police said.

The "armed subject" was arrested without incident at about 5:30 p.m., according to police. No one was injured.

McClure Elementary School and The Goddard School of McKinney were on lockdown at one point Monday, though police emphasized the standoff did not happen at either school.

People were asked to avoid the area as a precaution.
