BELLMORE, Long Island (PIX11) - A scary home invasion robbery on Long Island left one person injured and a high school on lockout as police searched for three suspects Friday morning.

The men are believed to have fled with roughly $2,000 in cash and a substantial amount of jewelry.  Neighbors say a white or gray van with tinted windows was seen driving away from the home.

Nearby Kennedy High School and the Bellmore Elementary School District were placed on lockout around 11:15 a.m. as police search for the suspects.

The lockout has since been lifted, but no arrests have been made.
