(NORTH TONAWANDA, NY) WKBW - North Tonawanda High School, Meadow Elementary and St. Matthews School were all placed on lockout around 7:50 a.m. Thursday. No one was allowed to come inside the schools at that time.

Officers say one male armed with a pistol robbed CVS drug store on Payne Avenue. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken. According to police, an employee of the store was hit in the back of the head by the suspect. They are now looking at surveillance video and interviewing witnesses.

Police say there is no reason to believe the public is in danger, even though the suspect has not been caught.
