MADISON — Officials at a Madison elementary school say a man being chased by police attempted to elude officers by ducking into their building where he was confronted by a teacher and apprehended.

In an email to parents, John Muir Elementary School Principal Andrea Kraft says police were pursuing a wanted suspect on foot in the neighborhood near school Monday morning.

The unarmed suspect entered the school about 9:30 a.m. and walked into the gym where the physical education teacher radioed the office for help, removed the students from the area and the school was put on lockdown.

Officers apprehended the suspect shortly after he entered the school building. The lockdown ended with the suspect in custody.
