Schools locked down Tuesday

Crystal River High School and Crystal River Primary School were placed on a “code yellow” lockdown at approximately 11 a.m. Tuesday as a precautionary measure while Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies searched for a suspicious man in the residential area off of Turkey Oak Drive.

The lockdown was lifted a little less than an hour later when CCSO investigators moved their search farther away from the two schools.
