Schools Locked Down

At this hour three men are awaiting charges after a home invasion that led to the lock down of three local schools today.

Police say the three suspects tried to break into this house on East Main Street in Winnebago. The men fled on foot after a confrontation with a resident inside that house. Police thought the suspects were armed so they put Winnebago High School and Middle School as well as Mcnair Grade School on lock down.

The lock down was lifted around 10:45 after the three men were captured. There were no weapons found on any of the suspects.
