The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate an assault that happened near the Arlington school building this morning. Sheriff Michael Heldman explained that there isn’t much information available at the moment…

Authorities were seeking Brandon Pinks in connection to the case. After eluding authorities for several hours he was finally caught Monday evening.

The incident put the school building in Arlington under a lockdown. The school announced later that the lockdown was lifted and that there was no danger to the students.

Superintendent Kevin Haught spoke to us this morning and confirmed that the students were safe. Haught tells us that a medical helicopter used a practice field to land to remove one victim from the nearby incident.
