    RM)—A man carrying a rifle walking along West Willow was detained by Enid Police late this morning. The apprehension took place on Willow near the intersection with Cleveland in the 11 o’clock hour. 35 year-old Russell Andrew Anderson of Hunter was taken in to custody. EPD Captain Jack Morris said when the first 911 calls came in two area schools, Prairie View Elementary and Glenwood Elementary were placed on lockdown. Morris said in total, Anderson was carrying the assault rifle, two pistols, 11 loaded magazines, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and three knives. Oklahoma's Self-Defense Act allows those with permits to carry handguns, which Anderson had two, but does not allow for carrying an assault rifle. The law makes few exceptions for carrying a rifle, such as when hunting or carrying a rifle from a home to a vehicle. Anderson was arrested on a complaint of unlawful carrying of a weapon, which is a misdemeanor.

    TH)--More than 70 people attended a town-hall style meeting Monday night at Enid High School being hosted by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister.
