Lockdowns at 3 Miami Beach schools lifted after police clear perimeter in search for subject

MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - The lockdowns at three Miami Beach schools have been lifted after police broke down a perimeter that had been set up in search of a subject in the area of North Beach.

Miami Beach Police first set up the perimeter near 77th Street and Dickens Avenue at around noon, Thursday.

Police had reported that a subject bailed out of a stolen vehicle in the area.

Out of an abundance of caution, Biscayne Elementary, Lehrman Day School and later Mater Academy were placed on lockdown.

Miami-Dade and City of Miami police assisted with the investigation.

It remains unclear if the subject was taken into custody.
