DANVILLE, Ky. -- Three people are dead and most of a central Kentucky town was on lockdown for two hours Friday after a robbery at a pawn shop in Danville, police said.
According to The Danville, Ky. Advocate-Messenger, the shooter remains at large and authorities are looking for a white male, about 20, with a scruffy beard and black hoodie who was riding a bicycle away from the scene at about 9 a.m.
The Boyle County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting happened during an armed robbery at ABC Gold Pawn Shop on Fourth Street.
The owners of the shop and a customer -- two men and a woman -- are dead, the sheriff tells USA Today.
The pawn shop is two to three blocks southeast of the Centre College campus and about three blocks southwest of the Kentucky School for the Deaf, which were on lockdown for about two hours, USA Today reports.
According to Centre College’s website, morning classes were canceled but afternoon classes were scheduled to resume at 1:50 p.m.
School officials said, “We thank local law enforcement for their swift action dealing with this incident in the local community, and we express our sympathy to those families affected by this tragedy.”
