LITTLE ROCK — The student wanted for attempted capital murder and robbery turned himself in to police Wednesday morning.

His identity has not been released although the student will be charged as an adult.

Tuesday, Little Rock Police said the suspect escaped from a school resource officer at Hall High which led to a manhunt that locked down two schools.

Police said the 16-year-old student was being held in the school resource office when he maneuvered out of his handcuffs and jumped down a flight of stairs. The student ran off. Officers chased him but lost sight of him as he ran into the surrounding neighborhood.

Forest Heights Middle School and Hall High School went on voluntary lockdown and the school district followed protocol. All students were safely dismissed without incident, according to police.
