Schools close amid Wisc. manhunt for gun theft suspect

Schools close amid Wisc. manhunt for gun theft suspect

Authorities believe Jakubowski might also be targeting schools, forcing those in the Janesville area to go on lockdown this week. His vehicle was found on fire about 20 minutes later, with evidence showing it was an arson fire.

"Soft lockdown" indicates that business within the building will continue as usual but no students will be allowed to exit the building for recess or other purposes.

Janesville, Edgerton, Evansville, Fort Atkinson and Milton school districts were locked down, according to the districts. Police said Saturday that they have responded to more than 200 leads and are still working on approximately 70 of them.

Police in Jakubowski's native Janesville, Wisc., aren't sure if he's still in the town, the surrounding Rock County or even the state. "However, please understand that there is no specific threat to our schools and as far as the students know, the only issue is that there is no outside recess today".

Police say he stole more than a dozen guns on Tuesday and today, we learned he mailed a 161-page manifesto to the White House with grievances towards the government and law enforcement.

Authorities didn't reveal the exact contents of the manifesto, but said it had been sent to the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit.

Another man, filming Jakubowski says "You'll never forget this face, ever", as they both exit the post office.

Police say a surveillance picture shows him stealing 16 guns from a Janesville store on Tuesday. Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said an associate of Jakubowski told authorities he had been "agitated" by national politics and "recently verbalized a plan to steal guns and use them in an unspecified attack". He is considered armed and unsafe.

Law enforcement authorities that include the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Secret Service have checked out 65 leads and 12 different locations during their search for Jakubowski, Spoden said.
