MEDINA – A precautionary lockdown has been lifted at Medina Central Schools after Medina police officers pursued a suspect wanted on a warrant this morning.

Police were pursuing the suspect on foot near Oak Orchard and Gwinn streets. Police told the school to be placed on lockdown at 8 a.m. That was lifted at about 10 a.m.

The district was able to transition from lockdown to lockout, which allowed visitors to enter the school with an escort.

Medina was also able to give Regents and final exams.

“Nothing was delayed or altered,” said Mark Kruzynski, the district superintendent.

The suspect was able to evade police.
