Lockdowns at Winters Mill High and Cranberry Station Elementary schools were lifted at about 1 p.m. Tuesday, after police concluded a search for a man involved in a Baltimore County carjacking, but as of 8:55 p.m. Tuesday the man was still on the loose.

The carjacking took place at about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday in Randallstown, according to a Baltimore County Police Department news release, which states that a woman told investigators that a man entered her Jeep while she was at the intersection of Liberty and Marriottsville roads, and then forced her to drive him to Westminster. The man then exited the vehicle in the Westminster area near Winters Mill High and fled the area on foot.
