A Las Vegas elementary school is on lockdown as police search for two robbery suspects Monday morning, police said.

At 6:15 a.m., two men entered the Jackpot Jonie's on 6085 South Fort Apache Road, near Patrick Lane, and demanded money from an employee before leaving in a sedan.

Officers urged motorists and pedestrians in the area to avoid Viking Road and Redwood Street while they search the area near the school.
