School takes precaution as police search for suspects in Fontainebleau area, open app for more


Dominican High School is on modified lockdown due to police activity in the area.

The school is located in the 7000 block of Walmsley Avenue in the Fontainbleau area.

A New Orleans Police Department spokesman said that around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, a low-risk warrant was being served at a home in the 2900 block of Broadway Street. While detectives were on the scene, two men and a woman ran out the back door.

The three suspects are currently at large.

Dominican school leaders said students are allowed to move about, but all entrances and exits are closed off out of an abundance of caution. Police did not place any businesses or schools in the vicinity on lockdown.
