Cowan Road Elementary and Middle schools on lockdown following nearby shooting


Cowan Road Elementary and Middle schools are on lockdown as personnel of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office investigate an alleged armed robbery and shooting.
“A man walking home from work was robbed in Tyus Park,” said Capt. Tony Ranieri, of the Criminal Investigation Division. “Shots were fired at the victim, and as a precautionary measure, the schools were locked down. We want to alert parents that nothing happened at the schools, but we’re taking this measure until we felt it’s safe to say the perpetrator is no longer in the area.”
The suspect is described as a black male wearing a brown jacket and brown pants.
Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 770.467.4282.

UPDATE: Beaverbrook Elementary School was additionally locked down as a strictly precautionary measure.
