Owensboro Police say a suicidal man has been found after an incident put a school on lockdown Wednesday.

They found his vehicle near the Sports Center Parking Lot. The Owensboro Hazardous Device Squad was dispatched to check it out.

While searching for the man, police put Owensboro Catholic High and the ice arena next to the Sports Center on lockdown.

Police say they later found the man near the Moreland Park area and was taken to River Valley Health for an evaluation.
