Bobcat roaming neighborhoods prompts lockdown of schools

Four schools were locked down for more than an hour Thursday after a bobcat was reported roaming through neighborhoods in the Summerlin area.

A motorist reported the bobcat near Rampart and Charleston boulevards about 10:55 a.m., Metro Police officials said.

Deerfelt, Piggott and Jacobson Elementary schools and Johnson Middle School were placed on lockdown at 11 a.m. while police and Clark County animal control officers searched for the cat, Clark County School District officials said.

Police called off the search about 12:40 p.m. without locating the animal. The lockdown was lifted about the same time.
