Earlier report:

Six school districts in Westchester are on lockout Tuesday as police are looking a man believed to be armed and dangerous on Route 119 in Tarrytown.

The Elmsford Union Free, Hastings-on-Hudson, Dobbs Ferry and Ardsley school districts went into lockout after earlier lockouts were declared for Irvington and Tarrytown schools.

The Tarrytown Public School District posted online that it has placed schools on lockout because of police activity at Sleepy Hollow Gardens located at 177 White Plains Road.

The Irvington Union Free School District informed parents online that a male with a dark complexion, possibly wearing a camouflage jacket, is being sought and believed to be armed.

There were multiple reports that a woman was fatally shot at Sleepy Hollow Gardens around 7:30 a.m., with the victim being hospitalized. The man reportedly shot and killed his girlfriend then ran off and remains at large.

In a lockout, only students and staff will be permitted to enter a school building. Staff will man all entrances to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

Police said they could not comment on an active situation.
