EUGENE, Ore. – Out of an abundance of caution, Sheldon High School was placed on a lockout Friday as police responded to a robbery more than a mile away.

The incident happened at the Walmart on Green Acres Road. Police said the robbery involved someone with a gun who ran from the area. A police dog unit was brought in but unable to track the suspect down.

During the lockout, students were brought inside and all exterior doors were locked. No one was allowed to enter or exit. Officials said police and administrators wanted to play it safe.
