January 10, 2018 12:39PM - The Lynchburg Police Department responded to the Wards Ferry Road area at 11:56AM today to investigate a situation involving two male suspects fighting with a possible weapon involved. Prior to the officers arriving on scene, one of the male subjects fled the scene and was reported to possibly be carrying a gun.
Because the area is within proximity to Heritage high School and Elementary School, both schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution.
Officers remain on the scene investigating this incident.
