A high-speed chase in Coralville yesterday ended on school grounds, with gunshots fired on the edge of school property and a suspect killed. Police started chasing a man on a motorcycle in a residential area, but the pursuit ended up on a foot trail behind an elementary school. Third and fourth graders were playing outside behind the school when cops called school officials and told them to get the kids inside. Superintendent Lane Plugge. Plugge says that school building — and all schools in the area — immediately went into lock-down mode. Students got out of school at their normal time, but parents had to come to the door to get them. Coralville cops haven’t released the name of the man who was killed or the reason for the high-speed pursuit.
