MOORHEAD – Moorhead’s Horizon Middle School was locked down for about 45 minutes Friday as police checked the building and neighborhood to be sure a man hadn’t entered the school after allegedly trying to lure a child.

The lockdown started about 11:15 a.m., when a girl in a physical education class reported to a teacher that she had been approached by a stranger passing by on foot, Moorhead police Lt. Deric Swenson said.
