CYPRESS, Texas – Students at Hamilton Elementary and Hamilton Middle schools in Cypress were given the all-clear Tuesday after the facilities were placed in “secure” mode because of a nearby manhunt.

Authorities said they were searching the area near Eldridge Parkway and Louetta Road for someone believed to be connected to a carjacking.

The schools are located on Kluge Road, a little more than a mile away from the scene.

A spokeswoman for the Cy-Fair Independent School District said about 2:45 p.m. that the all-clear was given.
