Los Angeles police on Wednesday were in a standoff with a suspect who was refusing to come out of an allegedly stolen vehicle and at least one school was placed on lockdown, police said. 

Officers were responding to reports of a stolen vehicle in South L.A. around 11 a.m., an LAPD spokesperson told Fox News. A pursuit ensued and the suspect was stopped at 59th Street and Budlong Avenue. 

At least one school, John Muir Middle School, was placed on lockdown, police said. 

Other schools – Budlong Elementary and Parks Huerta Early Education Center – were also put on lockdown, FOX 11 of Los Angeles was reporting.

Earlier, two schools in Hollywood were temporarily placed on lockdown after an armed suspect barricaded inside a tent in the area of Selma Avenue and McCadden Place. 

LAPD told Fox News the situation has since been resolved.
