Lovejoy High School and Lovejoy Middle School are on lockdown and will remain that way until further notice, according to Clayton County Police. The two Clayton County schools are on lockdown due to an escaped prisoner in the area, police said.
Georgia Corrections officials reported that inmate Steven Bone walked away from an outside maintenance detail at Love Joy Regional Park.
Officials from Georgia Corrections and Clayton County Police say Bone is not thought to be dangerous. Still, all students are being kept inside the school at the moment and no one is allowed inside.
Lovejoy High School is located at 1587 McDonough Road in Hampton, Ga., and Lovejoy Middle School is located at 1588 Lovejoy Rd, also in Hampton. Both are part of Clayton County Public Schools.
The high school has a population of 1894 students.
