Masked Man Allegedly enters Iota Middle School

IOTA – Both Iota Middle School and Iota High School remain on lockdown after school officials say a masked man walked onto the campus.

Witnesses say the suspect went to the high school and knocked on the principal's door. After there was no answer, he went inside the middle school where he was detained until authorities arrived.

Both the suspect and his vehicle have been removed from the school. The superintendent says the suspect is a former student.

There are no official reports of whether or not the suspect was armed but witnesses say he was seen with a machete.
