Deputies locked down a North Shore school after a man traveling through St. Tammany Parish called 911 and said he was being followed by "witches and demons."

The central Louisiana man called police to ask for an escort to the to the Mississippi state line. When dispatchers asked for his location he told them he was on Highway 1088 near Lakeshore High School. He also told the operator he was wearing a bullet proof vest and was armed with knives.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Jack Strain contacted Superintendent Trey Folse and the school went into lockdown. Dozens of deputies established a perimeter around the school, according to the sheriff's office. Even more entered the school to ensure the safety of faculty and students inside.

Later, deputies were able to determine the man had crossed into Mississippi and the decision was made to lift the lockdown. Sheriff Strain then joined the faculty and students for lunch on Principal Jeanne Wagner's invitation.
