Police Search This A.M. Turns Up No Suspect After Lockdown

Greeneville police posted extra officers in the vicinity of Greeneville Middle School, Hal Henard Elementary School and Takoma Regional Hospital this morning in an effort to locate a man reportedly seen in the area Wednesday morning who may have been carrying a rifle.

Police had saturated the area on Wednesday morning after receiving a call from a witness who "thought they saw" a white male, wearing a Carhartt-type coat, who may have been carrying a rifle, Assistant Chief Craig Fillers said.

No one was located, but the schools and Takoma Regional Hospital were placed in lockdown mode for several hours Wednesday morning as a precaution.

"We had officers on the scene pretty quickly, but were unable to find anyone," Fillers said. "At this point it is an unsubstantiated [report]."

Anyone with information about the person sought by police Wednesday morning can call the Greeneville Police Department at (423) 639-7111.
