“Intruder Enters Local Elementary, Prompts Lockdown”
(WKRN2) Percy Priest Elementary in Forrest Hills was placed on lockdown Wednesday after an intruder entered the school.
The man, 43-year-old Michael Street, was first spotted in the school yard and then pushed his way into the south Nashville school.
After about 45 minutes, Metro Police managed to subdue Street and he was taken into custody.
Parent Michelle Evans was volunteering at the school when Street pushed his way inside.
“I heard a call come into the office that said, ‘Second grade… Call the police.’ I had a second grader and so I went to one of the doors to see what was going on……
…They were trying to get the kids inside. I saw this man who just pushed himself in. There were a couple of male teachers trying to subdue the man and they couldn’t, he just pushed his way in,” Evans told News 2.
Police said one teacher in particular is credited with keeping the intruder at bay, away from the students.
Metro Police spokesperson Don Aaron said, “Music teacher James Mott did an absolutely tremendous job keeping him away from the kids… Mr. Mott deserves a tremendous amount of credit here.”
Street faces numerous charges Wednesday night.
Most likely not a probe or dry run. “Hats Off!” to music teacher James Mott who didn’t wait to see what the mans intentions were. Mott confronted the man and restrained him, keeping him away from any of the children until police arrived.
