Lawrenceburg schools were put on lockdown as a precaution which was later lifted.

The male suspect was wearing a fluorescent green t-shirt, blue jeans and work boots, police said.

According to Deddens, less than 24 hours after the alleged crime, a suspect was identified and taken into custody.

Once formal charges are filed, his identity and additional details will be released, the prosecutor said.
