A man carrying a gun near two schools in San Pedro has been taken into custody, allowing campus lockdowns to be lifted.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputy attempted to stop and identify the man about 8:30 a.m., but the suspect fled. Bandini Elementary School and Harbor Adult School were placed on lockdown during the search as a precaution.

Deputies contained the man within a block near the schools and, using canine units, found the suspect and recovered the gun shortly before 11 a.m. His identity wasn’t immediately available.
