District administrators issued a lockdown at Lubbock-Cooper South Elementary Thursday morning. This came after a stabbing in the area overnight.
It happened after midnight in the 900 Block of Private Road 7630, that's about 20-yards from the school. Sheriff's deputies had not made an arrest by the time classes started, so Superintendent Pat Henderson ordered a lockdown. It was lifted a few hours later, once the suspect was no longer considered a threat.
Sheriff's deputies are still investigating the stabbing, and have yet to make an arrest. The victim was treated for moderate injuries at UMC.
