Upon officers arrival, they located the individual in question and a brief foot pursuit ensued. Shortly thereafter, the subject was apprehended at a location adjacent to the Houma Air Base.

As the investigation continued, it was learned that a former student entered the campus without permission. It was later reported that the subject possibly had a weapon. This information was relayed to the school resource officer who relayed the information to patrol officers in the area. At this point, the subject was confronted, and a brief foot pursuit ensued. Once apprehended, he was identified as a juvenile male, who does not attend Oaklawn Jr. High.
During further investigation, the subject in question was not found to be in possession of a weapon, but the nature of the incident caused the school to go on lockdown for a brief period of time.
