An elementary school was locked down this morning after officers pulled over a stolen vehicle nearby in the area of Washington Avenue and Torrey Pines Drive, according to Metro Police.
Officers responded about 9 a.m. to reports of a stolen vehicle in the area of Carmen Boulevard and Dreamland Circle, Officer Larry Hadfield said.
As officers tried to stop the vehicle, one person jumped out and fled but was caught, police said.
