      Worcester County schools on lockdown as police search for suspect

      Several schools on Maryland's Eastern Shore were placed on lockdown Monday morning while authorities searched for a man wanted for making threats of terror in Delaware, officials say.

      Worcester County authorities say they're on the lookout for a white man with a stocky build, standing 5-foot-8 inches tall with black hair and black facial hair. He's wanted in Delaware for making terroristic threats and may be armed.
