HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Elementary school went on lockdown Friday afternoon after a nearby bank was robbed.

Huntersville Elementary School, located in the 200 block of Gilead Road, went on lockdown for a little over an hour at 12:30 Friday. School officials tell NBC Charlotte the lockdown was due to police activity in the area.
