LAWTON, Ok (KSWO) -

Lawton police said a 911 hang up call is the apparently what led to the lockdown at MacArthur early Friday afternoon.

They said 911 received a call in the early afternoon hours on Friday and the caller was not being cooperative with dispatchers so a unit was dispatched for a welfare check. When officers arrived, they made contact with a resident who said the original caller had left the residence through a nearby field.

LPD officers checked the area but were never able to locate the caller.

Officials said they did not alert LPS to the situation and did not request MacArthur to be placed on lockdown.

The lockdown was lifted within an hour.
