CINCINNATI -- Oyler School in Lower Price Hill was locked down after shots were fired in the area Wednesday morning.
Police on the scene say Roy Lee fired off shots a few blocks away in the 600 block of Neave Street, which prompted the school to go on lockdown.
Lee was observed ducking into an apartment building after the shooting, and that prompted a SWAT team response.
SWAT team officers searched the area for Lee, but eventually a Cincinnati Police Department negotiator got a hold of Lee's cellphone, talked to him for 30 minutes and convinced Lee to turn himself in. Lee was taken into custody around 2 p.m. without incident.
Police said Lee was released from jail earlier Wednesday, but officers could not immediately elaborate what he was locked up for.
9 On Your Side reporter Jay Warren said the intended shooting victim was cooperating with police and went unharmed.
No students were injured as a result of the shooting and all were allowed to leave at a regular dismissal time.
The school is located at 2121 Hatmaker Street, with pre-K through 12th grade students, according to Cincinnati Public Schools' website.
