WESTLAKE, Ohio - An "all clear" has been issued after Westlake police sent out a safety alert following a carjacking in a nearby city.
The carjacking happened in Avon at about 6:28 a.m. Monday.
The vehicle, a Ford Taurus, had been spotted on Detroit Road near Bassett Road. Westlake police said the driver crashed into a pickup truck at that intersection and fled. Officers said the man forced his way into a nearby apartment and then fought with police, who then used a Taser on him.
That suspect was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Police then issued the alert to the community after a second man ran from officers at that same intersection at about 7:22 a.m. Investigators said they thought he may be an accomplice to the first suspect, and in the area searching for him after dumping a car stolen in Cleveland.
Bassett School was placed on lockdown, until the second suspect was arrested at 9:12 a.m. near the Hunters Chase apartment complex on Detroit Road.
The names of the suspects have not yet been released. The second suspect told police he's a juvenile -- and investigators later learned he is the 14-year-old brother of the first suspect.
The man driving the pickup truck struck by the first suspect was injured in the crash. Police said the 54-year-old Westlake man suffered face, back and arm injuries.
Westlake Police Captain Guy Turner said they also confiscated crack cocaine out the pocket of the 14-year-old boy when they arrested him.
