HICKMAN COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – When drug agents made a traffic stop near East Food Center in Centerville Wednesday afternoon, two suspects in the car took off running.
Schools were immediately placed on lock down as a precaution, while the search got underway. One man was captured quickly. But deputies feared the second man had a gun.
Police were searching for Jeremy B. Hollis, 22, who was seen running near school property.
Deputies stood guard at school doors as a police chopper flew over the area.
It didn’t take long for them to find Hollis hiding in a house a quarter mile away.
East Elementary, Intermediate and Middle School students were not in immediate danger and went home when the lock down was lifted.
