Parents of students attending Ellison High School in Killeen received an alert from KISD on Wednesday morning about a heavy police presence on campus.

According to a post to the KISD Facebook page, Killeen police were in pursuit of a stolen car early this morning and the driver ditched the vehicle at the Ellison High campus and ran onto the campus in and amongst the portable buildings just prior to students arriving for class.

The post went on to say that KISD police were able to quickly apprehend the suspect preventing them from entering the main envelope of the building. KISD officers then turned the suspect over to Killeen Police. There was no weapon found and police searched the portable area on the campus.

KISD is reporting that all students and faculty are safe and there will be increased police presence on campus throughout the day to ensure everyone's safety.
