A manhunt is under way in Iredell County for a suspect wanted in a weekend homicide.

This is video shot earlier this morning of officers searching for the suspect around the Bluefield Road and Cornelius Road area.

Five schools are under lockdown. Those schools are Troutman Elementary, Troutman Middle, Lakeshore Elementary, Lakeshore Middle and Lake Norman High School.

Police are searching for Orazio Fava, 23, of 661 Cabarrus Avenue in Mooresville. Fava and James Hermanson are wanted for murdering a man in a wooded area on the side of Mezeppa Road in Mooresville.

The Iredell County Sheriff already arrested these two men. Detectives say James Small and Eugene Robinson participated in the homicide. They are both charged with aiding and abetting murder.
