SECURITY, Colo. (KKTV) - A wanted man is in custody after briefly evading capture Monday morning.

Residents in a Security neighborhood were told to stay in their homes for a short time while deputies tried to catch up to the suspect.

“Deputies are in the area searching for a wanted man who is on foot and going yard to yard to try and evade capture,” the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office tweeted at 8:37 a.m.

The shelter-in-place order was lifted within 30 minutes.

Nearby Sunrise Elementary School was put on a secured perimeter status during the law enforcement activity. District officials told 11 News that the security status had no impact to normal school operations inside the building.

The suspect’s name and what he was wanted for have not been released at the time of this writing.
