Lindale police and other law enforcement are responding to a reported aggravated robbery which has put Lindale public schools in lockdown.

According to an informed source, a man jumped into a pickup truck which was in traffic on South Street in Lindale and attempted to carjack the vehicle at gunpoint. The driver of the truck fought back, and the attempted carjacker sustained an injury in that exchange. He also lost at least one shoe as he fled the vehicle.

Police say the man is armed and still on the loose somewhere in the vicinity of South Street in Lindale.
