Camp Point Schools were in lock down mode for about an hour this afternoon after the Adams County Sheriff's department called to warn of a dangerous person in the area.
The Sheriff's department said the man they were looking for could be a danger to himself and others and Superintendent Marty Cook ordered the school buildings to be secured.
Parents were notified by the school district.
Cook told WTAD News that the incident began at around 1:30 or so and within an hour, the all clear was given after the man hunt ended with an arrest.
The school district was prepared to shelter the students if necessary - but Cook said everyone was sent home as normal.
