An armed robbery in Avondale Tuesday morning prompted a lockdown at two schools in the area.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. near 107th Avenue and Indian School Road.

Police say the armed robbery took place at a business just north of Westview High School and Garden Lakes Elementary school.

So, both schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution. That lock down was lifted a short time later.
