Canyon, TX - The search continues for a suspect involved in an armed robbery.

That led to the WT campus being put on lockdown. Around 4:30 this morning students were alerted there was an armed robbery at the Holiday Inn Hotel on 4th Avenue, next to the campus.

Canyon Police Chief Dale Davis says the suspect was last seen wearing dark pants, a grey sweater, a bandana over his mouth, with a black hat and sunglasses.

Officers say he showed a weapon, demanded money and then fled on foot.

The WT campus has re-opened and classes will be held as regular.
