Jaime Ediel Buentello, 33, was put in custody on Friday in the 10500 block of Southwest Freeway in Houston.

According to a Lamar CISD spokesperson, the FBCSO told the school district about a domestic violence incident involving a "member of their school community."

Even though there was no threat against any Lamar CISD campus, student, or staff member, the spokesperson said they closed Gray Elementary and Randle High on Tuesday and Wednesday out of caution.
