Horace Mann Elementary School and Sierra Middle School were placed on temporary lockdown as a precaution as KCSO deputies search for two subjects.

According to KCSO, deputies were called out to the 2700 block of Monterey St. in East Bakersfield after two subjects were spotted in a neighborhood looking into homes. When deputies tried to make contact, the subjects took off on foot and headed north toward Horace Mann Elementary and Sierra Middle School.

13 deputies and a sergeant are still looking for the subjects. They are currently checking houses and yards. BPD has also loaned KCSO their K9 to help with the search. 

The lockdown has been lifted for both Horace Mann Elementary and Sierra Middle School. No one is in custody at this time.
