Wilson Neighborhood Lockdown Lifted

Residents of one Wilson neighborhood are now free to come and go, after police lifted a mandated lockdown that was put into effect overnight during a search for a break-in suspect.

We spoke with Wilson Police Sgt. John Slaughter, who says a break-in at The Gallery of Flowers on Airport Boulevard in Wilson, led to a chase after the suspect.

Sgt. Slaughter says police asked residents of the Lakeside and Queensferry Drive areas to stay inside, but now the search perimeter has been lifted.

The suspect who broke into the flower shop and led police on a chase, ditched his car and ran into the woods. He still has not been found.
