WASHINGTON — Anthony Burns Elementary School in Stafford County, Virginia, is on partial lockdown Tuesday morning as police search for an armed robbery suspect.
They’ve tracked the suspect to the neighborhoods of Hampton Oaks and Austin Ridge.
He is described as a light-skinned black man, 5-foot-10, and heavyset with a thin beard.
The partial lockdown is a precaution. Students and staff can move throughout the building, but not outside.
Police say the suspect carjacked a vehicle in Fairfax on Sunday and committed two robberies between 1 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, in Spotsylvania and one in Stafford.
