Schools resume normal schedule as police call of search for slashing suspect
The search for a slashing suspect in Harrison this morning caused a stir in nearby school districts this morning.
Four schools in Harrison were on at least a two-hour delay as county police along with K-9 units and other police departments searched for the suspect. Harrison Avenue, Louis Klein Middle School and Purchase Elementary School have since resumed a normal schedule.
A lockout was put in place for the Blind Brook School District and in Port Chester as a precaution. At the time, interim School Superintendent Colin Byrne said the schools aren't in any danger, but all non-emergency visits to the buildings were suspended until the lockout was lifted.
Westchester County police and Harrison police say they have ended the search for the suspect involved. It has been determined that the suspect is no longer in the area or a threat to the community.
