Suspect in parole agent's shooting apprehended, officials say
Multiple law enforcement officials who spoke to The Times identified the suspect as Steven Hoff, 43.
Hoff has convictions for weapons possession and terrorist threats, according to court records and law enforcement officials.
He was taken into custody by officers about 6 p.m., according to the law enforcement officials who asked not to be named because the investigation was ongoing.
Two Lake View Terrace schools, Brainard Elementary School and Delphi Academy, were locked down.
Authorities said 166 students and staff members were at Delphi, and that eight staff members were at Brainard because students were on vacation.
Authorities were in the process of evacuating students Wednesday evening.
