The Henderson County sheriff’s office says Mountain Community School was on a precautionary lockdown Friday morning.  It was lifted just after 9am.

According to the sheriff’s office, they were looking for two suspects in an attempted armed robbery.

Investigators say that someone reported two masked men broke into an apartment near Hope Creek Lane.

The caller reported one of the men had a gun, but they both ran when they were confronted.

Deputies tracked the suspects to an area off New Hope Road where they think someone picked them up.

A dark colored Saturn sedan may have dropped off the suspects before the armed robbery.

If you have any information about the suspects of the car, you’re asked to call the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office at (828) 697-4911 or Crimestoppers at (828) 697-STOP.
