OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A suspect who was wanted for a homicide in San Leandro was arrested near Bishop O’Dowd High School in Oakland around 3 p.m. Wednesday, according to Oakland police spokeswoman Holly Joshi.

Joshi said a perimeter that was set up by police led to authorities imposing a lockdown at Bishop O’Dowd, which is located at 9500 Stearns Ave., as well as at the nearby Barack Obama Academy at 9736 Lawlor St.
