2 Chatham County schools put on lockdown after suspects flee from stolen car

At the request of the Chatham County Sheriff's Office, Chatham Central High School and Bonlee School were placed on lockdown.

The lockdown started before 9 a.m. Wednesday and was changed to a "soft lockdown" at 11:30 - meaning the exterior doors are locked but students can enter and leave as needed.

Deputies said the precautionary measure started after several suspects fled from a stolen vehicle.

Authorities said two suspects are in custody and another is still at large.
