CEDAR PARK, Texas -- Police have charged two men following a shooting in Cedar Park.
Police charged 19-year-old Ryan Gilbertson with prohibited weapon and unlawful carry of a weapon. Nicholas Lilley, 22, was charged with criminal trespass and evading. Both are being held in Williamson County Jail.
Police searched the school room-by-room Monday morning looking for someone they thought may have had a gun.
It all started when police witnessed shots being fired from a car in the 1700 block of East Park earlier in the morning. They pulled over one car they believed to be involved and arrested the driver. At least one suspect ran away on foot. Police later found and arrested another person.
Cedar Park police then received information that one of the people involved may be near Leander High School. The department added that while investigating, Leander police discovered that a door was unsecured at the school.
Leander police put the building on lock down so they could make sure the suspect wasn't hiding inside.
The investigation forced the school to delay opening for two hours. Students were let in around 11 a.m. Leander police were given the "all clear" around 9 a.m.
"This went very smoothly. You had multiple agencies, the whole LISD staff was incredible. They were able to get info out to the students and parents very quickly, so LISD didn't have a lot of extra people showing up at school," Assistant Chief Jeff Hayes with the Leander Police Department said.
Two suspects are now in custody, and Cedar Park police are investigating whether a third person may be involved. They are in the process of reviewing dash camera video from the cruiser belonging ot the officer who witnessed the shooting.
Assistant Chief Hayes says the department trains for this type of situation, and he is pleased with the way his officers acted quickly and resolved the issue without putting any students at risk.
