A midtown middle school went on a brief soft lockdown Wednesday when a man jumped over the fence. 

According to Tucson Unified School District spokeswoman Karla Escamilla, the man jumped the fence at Gridley Middle School, 350 S. Harrison Road, before running into the school yard then jumping back out.

The soft lockdown was taken as a precautionary and classes resumed.

Police tracked down the suspect and took him into custody.
