SAN DIEGO (AP) — Police say a man wanted for a Riverside County shooting forced the lockdown of five San Diego schools as officers searched for him.

Spokesman Gary Hassen tells U-T San Diego an Orange County law enforcement task force got a tip that 22-year-old murder suspect Matthew Rowley of Corona was in the city's Tierrasanta neighborhood Tuesday.

Hassen says the task force spotted Rowley on the street and enlisted help from San Diego police but Rowley ran, cutting through yards to elude authorities.

A high school, a middle school, and three elementary schools in the area where placed on lockdown for about 90 minutes.

Rowley, wanted in the Jan. 16 shooting of Daniel Stordahl in Corona, had not been found hours later despite the search that used a helicopter and dogs.
