    Three people were arrested Wednesday in connection with a bank robbery in Homewood Wednesday that led to a lengthy standoff.

    Authorities say the suspects robbed the Bank of America branch at 183rd and Governors Highway at about 11:30 a.m.

    One of the suspects was caught shortly afterward, but dozens of police officers, a SWAT team and FBI agents surrounded an apartment complex near 183rd Street and Governors Highway searching for the other two.

    The remaining suspects were arrested at about 2:30 p.m. Charges have yet to be filed in the case.

    Two nearby schools were placed on lockdown during the standoff.

    No injuries were reported.
