Two Huffman ISD schools are on lockdown while police search for some suspects in the area.

The school district says Huffman middle school and Hargrave High School are both on lockdown as a precaution. At around 10:50 this morning, Harris County Sheriff's deputies say they briefly chased several suspects in a vehicle off of FM 2100.

The Harris Co. Precinct 3 Constable's Office says the chase started as a traffic stop, but the suspects fled, driving through a pasture before they bailed out. Two of the suspects were caught shortly thereafter.

Deputies say they are still looking for a third suspect.

One of the suspects taken into custody said he fled because he had a warrant for his arrest, according to deputy constables. We'll post more details here as they come into the newsroom.
