The lockdown ordered for a Pasadena ISD high school was lifted late Wednesday afternoon. The lockdown was put in place after a woman in fear for her life ran into the school to hide from her husband. A Pasadena ISD spokesperson said the woman's husband had threatened her several times before she sought refuge at Dobie High School.

Some students were still inside the school, which was placed under lockdown at 5pm. The spokesperson said it wasn't clear whether the woman's husband is armed, but HPD and Pasadena ISD ruled on the side of safety.

A nearby elementary school was also put under lockdown.

No other details were immediately available.
