ARREST MADE: Possible Active Shooter Situation Near Bushmaster Park.



11:19 AM Flagstaff Police are responding to the Harbor Freight on Route 66 for reports of a man in the parking lot who allegedly brandished and fired a revolver handgun. This may be related to the earlier shots fired call we posted that occurred this morning near Brannan Cir. The suspect is described as a Native American Male with a Tan jacket, jeans, and a blue checkered shirt. UPDATE: Officers have several individuals detained at nearby Bushmaster Park who may be involved. Mt Elden Middle School has been placed on Lockdown or Shelter in place as a precaution. One witness is now saying the suspect is a Native male, and a large beanie wearing all black (he may have changed clothes.) Officers at the Harbor Freight are out with several witnesses saying the suspect shot at them. No injuries reported yet. UPDATE: The suspect was also possibly shooting the gun as he walked through Siler Homes. DPS Helicopter is being asked to launch to aid in the search.
