MOORE, Okla. -- Several Moore schools were locked down for about 30 minutes this morning after a suspicious man was seen near the campuses, Superintendent Debbie Arato said.

Several people called police after seeing a man dressed in camouflage and carrying a weapon near Little River Park, Arato said.

The lock down ended when school officials were notified by police that they were questioning an individual matching the description. The weapon was a toy gun.

The schools in lock down were Santa Fe, Plaza Towers, Briarwood, Southgate, Kelley, Houchin, Central, Northmoor, as well as Central Jr. High, Highland East and Highland West.
