COLUMBIA - Hickman High School was placed on "modified lockdown" Wednesday after a car was stolen on Business Loop 70 around 10:15 a.m.
The car thief got out of the car near the school and ran, causing the lockdown.
A modified lockdown means no one is allowed in or out of the building, but students still go to classes like normal.
Columbia Public Schools said Hickman High School, Douglass High School, Jefferson Junior High, Ridgeway Elementary and ACE Center were also placed on lockdown, which is now over.
