WACO -- Police are looking for a man accused of robbing two men at gunpoint forcing a school to go on lockdown.

31-year old Jeremy Hunt and 34-year old Alfred Omar Brooks were parked in the 1100 block of Renick when a man approached asking for drugs.

When they told him they didn't have any the man pulled a gun, fired a shot and managed to get away with some cash.

After the gunshot a nearby elementary school was placed on lockdown.

"We went into lock down at approximately 11:30 a.m. and probably came off of lock down about thirty minutes later when we were given the all clear from the police officers who gave us reason to believe that the criminal was on longer in the area," said Dale Caffey, Waco ISD.

J.H. Hines Elementary preceded the rest of the day as normal.

One of the victims received minor injuries from broken glass during the incident.

The suspect was last seen fleeing from an alley in an older model green suburban with dark colored windows.
