Law enforcement officers are continuing to search for the armed suspect who was seen running onto Valley High School on Thursday.

Authorities say the incident all started when a probation officer saw, around 11:30 a.m., a juvenile fall off his bicycle. Officers went to help him out as a dog was also seen charging towards the juvenile. That’s when officers say they saw the juvenile pull out a firearm.

Officers then gave verbal commands to the juvenile, but he instead ran off and hopped a fence into Valley High.

The juvenile has not been seen since. Law enforcement officers have been sweeping the school campus, but at this point they don’t believe he is there.
