TUCSON, Ariz. - Tucson police lifted a lockdown Friday at an eastside elementary school after they tracked down an armed man who had driven by the school repeatedly.
According to Sgt. Pete Dugan, the man had a shotgun or rifle in the front seat of his vehicle and drove back and forth in front of Marshall Elementary, 9066 E. 29th Street. A crossing guard called 911.
