PARIS — Schools in Paris and Norway underwent a working lockdown for a little more than 45 minutes Thursday afternoon when the Paris Police Department warned the district that there was an “armed, unsecured individual in the Norway-Paris area.”

Detective Sgt. Michael Dailey said Thursday that at 11:36 a.m., the Paris Police Department called the district and said that they were working on tracking down an armed individual who was threatening to harm himself.

“The person was in a vehicle and was seen on Main Street,” Dailey said. “Out of caution, and due to the close proximity of the individual to the schools, we asked that the schools be placed on a working lockdown until we could track down the person.”

At 12:10 p.m., Dailey said, the individual was arrested in Norway.

He said that the individual’s identity would not be released because it was “a mental health issue.”
