Lincoln school temporarily put on lock down due to nearby police standoff

(Lincoln, NE) -- A Lincoln elementary school is temporarily placed on lock down due to a nearby police standoff.

The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says just before 7:45 Monday morning, members of the Metro Fugitive Task Force determined that 29 year old Trevaughn Brown was at an apartment near 24th and Dodge in Lincoln. Brown was wanted for a parole violation stemming from a conviction for 1st degree assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony from Douglas County that occurred in 2011. The Sheriff's Office says Brown was known to have possession of a weapon as recently as two months ago.

LSO says Task Force Members attempted to have Brown open the door or come out of the apartment for roughly two hours. Investigators say nearby Campbell Elementary was notified and put in lock down, as well as a child care facility nearby.

The Sheriff's Office says a result of Brown's violent criminal past, and the possibility he may be armed, their Tactical Response Unit was activated. After the Tactical Response Unit including the new Bearcat armored vehicle was in place and the Nebraska State Patrol's drone was on scene, Brown came out of the apartment and was arrested just after 11:00 Monday morning. Once the apartment was cleared, the school and day care were notified and resumed normal operations.
