SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A Chollas Creek elementary school was on lockdown Wednesday while police searched for an armed domestic violence suspect in the area.

The lockdown at John Marshall Elementary School in the Chollas Creek neighborhood of San Diego has been lifted, school district officials advise.
