FOUNTAIN, Colo. (KKTV) - Part of a residential street was under a shelter-in-place order while El Paso County deputies executed an arrest warrant.

The order included a nearby elementary school, District 3 confirmed to 11 News.

The incident started just before 10:30 a.m. when deputies arrived at a home in the 100 block of Judson Street in Fountain.

At the time of this writing, law enforcement has not said if there was a specific incident during the warrant execution that prompted the shelter-in-place order.

The order was lifted for both the street and Talbott Elementary School around 11 a.m. A spokesperson for D-3 says that while the school was on secured status, operations remained as normal inside the building; people were just not allowed to enter or exit the school.

We are working to get more information now, including whether any arrests were made.
