CLINTON -- Lockdowns at two Clinton schools have been lifted after a wanted fugitive and four other people were taken into custody at a nearby home.

Clinton police said they received a tip from the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force Wednesday morning that a suspect wanted for an aggravated assault in Roy was staying at a home near Voyage Academy, a K-6 charter school.

Both Voyage Academy and Clinton Elementary School were placed on "soft lockdown," meaning the teachers, staff and students remained inside their schools and the doors leading outside were locked.

Meanwhile, Clinton police attempted to make contact with the suspect.

"We tried to make contact by every means possible, and then, when we realized there was possible weapons involved, the SWAT team was called out," said Chief Bill Chilson, Clinton Police Department. "We did believe there was only four people in the house. It turned out to be five, three of which we don't really believe is involved in the assault situation."

In a statement sent to FOX 13 shortly after 11 a.m., Voyage Academy Director Stacee Phillips said the lockdown was lifted after Clinton City police advised them that the situation had been resolved.

    Kind of mad at the school for not calling us, found out via e-mail sure would have been nice to know as a parent

      There are way too many kids at that school for them to call all the parents. The email was a great notification. Besides, the kids were not in danger or imagine phone calls would have been made.

        I could see everything that was going on. The police had everything under control and contained. There was zero danger to any kids.
