J.H. Williams Middle School in Abbeville is on partial lockdown following an armed robbery in the area.
Abbeville Police Lt. David Hardy says the armed robbery did not occur at a business. He says a young, black male approached another man with a handgun, but Hardy says he is unsure of what the suspected robber was trying to take.
Vermilion Parish Schools Superintendent Jerome Puyau says police do not believe that the suspect is in the vicinity of the school.
"There's no immediate threat," Puyau said. "This is just an extra layer of security. Teaching is going on. Everything is normal."
