About 20 minutes later, the university confirmed that a suspect had fled from Waco police into University Parks Apartments, which houses about 500 students. The search for the suspect led to a Baylor Alert being sent to the phones of students, parents and staff just after 10:30 p.m. Thursday. When he left, he hit three vehicles and a female pedestrian with his auto and then drove away from the scene. Police found his vehicle near the intersection of Turner and Lenox Streets.
Baylor University in Waco, Texas, has been put on lockdown because police are searching for a risky suspect, school officials say. At that point, officers proceeded to set up a perimeter.
Police then spotted him at University Parks Apartments off University Parks Drive and La Salle Avenue.
The suspect has been known to carry a weapon in the past, but there were no reports of a weapon Thursday night, police said.
Approximately a dozen Waco and Baylor police officers were involved in helping to capture the suspect.
We're still working to learn the condition of the woman he hit.
