A local school was put on lockdown after four men broke into a nearby home, then one of the suspects ran onto school property and hid to evade deputies.

The Northland Christian School teacher who saw the suspect jump over the fence onto school property alerted school security and the campus immediately went on lockdown.

The suspect was caught hiding in a fenced area behind an air conditioning unit next to one of the buildings on the campus on Sylvanfield Drive in north Houston.

Students saw him to try to hide so police nabbed him fairly quickly.

A K-9 unit and two helicopters were called in to search for the remaining three suspects, but they have not yet been captured.

The lockdown was lifted and classes resumed after police gave the all-clear.

"I think our safety is great at Northland and when I heard about it I was perfectly fine that they were going to take care of the situation and keep our kids safe," said parent Suzanne Hajdik.

School officials say students were never in any danger.

A school administrator says the school will notify parents about the incident once they gather more information. About 300 students attend Northland Christian School.
