Suspect that prompted SC schools lockdown arrestedPolice: Man who shot at cop, caused 10 SC schools to lock down is arrested without incident
GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) ' Authorities have arrested a gunman who they say prompted a massive manhunt and the lock down of 10 schools after he shot at a police officer.
Investigators say 25-year-old Patrick Dean Lowrance was arrested Friday night at a Greenville apartment. They say he gave up peacefully and was taken to the hospital to treat a gunshot wound to his shoulder.
Authorities say Lowrance drove off in a stolen SUV after a Greenville police tried to pull him over Friday morning. He was later found at an apartment complex and fired shots at an officer before disappearing into the woods.
Officials locked down schools in the area and had dozens of officers and several dog tracking teams search for Lowrance before determining someone picked him up and drove off.
