Gardner Middle School and Cavanaugh Elementary Schools are on lockdown due to an incident near the campuses.
Lansing police have set up a perimeter around a house on Ora Street near Jolly Road. Police responded to that area around 9:45 Thursday morning, when someone call 911 to report a man was vandalizing a vehicle.
When officers arrived, the suspect started swinging a metal pipe at them, then entered his house. Police have reason to believe there are weapons inside that home, so a perimeter was set up around the home. Police, fire and a SWAT team are on the scene.
Police tell us they have established contact with the suspect inside the home, but communication has been sporadic. It's unknown if the suspect is alone in the home.
