SALISBURY, Md. - The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man they say ran from deputies Tuesday afternoon.

Just before noon Tuesday, officials with the Sheriff's Office say they received a tip regarding the possible location of a stolen vehicle. After finding the vehicle, officials say a deputy attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the driver took off.

A short while later, officials said the driver had a minor collision with another car on Parsons Road, and then took off on foot.

Pemberton Elementary School was placed on a partial lockdown while all of this was happening. Officials with the Wicomico County Board of Education said there would be no outdoor activities for the rest of the day, but dismissal would occur as usual.

The Sheriff's Office cleared the area around Parsons Road around 1:30 p.m. and the lockdown was lifted.

The search for the suspect is ongoing.
