Three schools in Morgan City including M.E. Norman Elementary, Morgan City Junior High School and Central Catholic Elementary & High School were placed under a temporary lockdown as a result of a patient leaving Ocshner St. Mary Hospital without clearance from his doctor. Morgan City Police Department told KQKI News that the male patient was under the care of his doctor and was not supposed to leave the hospital. Once it was discovered that he had left the hospital, the three schools were placed under lockdown at approximately 8;15 am as a precaution. The lockdown was lifted about 30 minutes later once the patient was located.
