Police are still looking for the armed intruder who ran into a Minneapolis high school on Tuesday, causing a lockdown and evacuation.

Minneapolis police was called to the area near Patrick Henry High School after passengers on a city bus reported seeing an armed male trying to get on the bus.

A squad car was nearby, with the suspect then fleeing from the bus and into the high school through a side door.

This prompted a lockdown in the school as officers descended on the building to conduct a thorough sweep.

Most children had left for the day but some 200 students and staff were still in the school when the suspect entered. They were escorted out by police as they went classroom-to-classroom.

Surveillance footage later showed the suspect leaving the school within minutes of entering.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder told GoMN he has not yet been located.

Description of the suspect

The suspect was described as a black male, 5 feet 6 inches tall with a slender build. He was wearing a puffy gray jacket and a brown beanie cap.
