Posted: Updated:

GLENDALE -- Glenn F. Burton Elementary School in Glendale was on lockdown for about two hours Thursday as police searched for an armed robbery suspect.

The school was having parent-teacher conferences so no students were on campus. However, staff and some parents were there.

Glendale police were searching for the suspect in the area of 45th Avenue and Bethany Home Road.

Police say the 25-year-old suspect fled from a stolen vehicle near 45th Avenue and Keim Drive, which is between Maryland Avenue and Bethany Home Road. He reportedly used a handgun in a prior robbery.

Police used K9s to search for the suspect.

Police are still looking for the suspect but are not optimistic they will find anyone.
