Wilmington schools locked down during search for man with gun


A brief scare at a couple of New Hanover County schools today.

A school district spokesperson says the Sheriff's Office got a call around 3 p.m. about a man on a bike near 13th and Ann Streets waving a gun. As a precaution deputies shut down New Hanover High and Williston Middle School as they investigated. They did not find anyone matching the description and ended the lockdown after about twenty minutes.
