From Abilene Police Department spokesman George Spindler:

At about 7:55 p.m. Tuesday, Officers Cody Brown and Darrin Ruiz responded to an armed subject call at a residence in the 1500 block of Sycamore Street. APD dispatch was notified that a male subject armed with a shotgun was threatening another male. Officers contacted the involved parties and witnesses. The preliminary investigation revealed that the male subject had gone over to the neighbors residence pointing a shotgun at the neighbor and placing the neighbor in fear for his life. When officers contacted the alleged subject at his residence, he was still holding a shotgun and initially refused commands to put the shotgun down. Officer Ruiz reported that the incident involved issues the subject had with the victim’s wife. The shotgun was seized and reported as loaded. The male subject was arrested for Aggravated Assault (with a deadly weapon). This investigation continues.

At about 6:40 a.m. Tuesday, Officer Jim Craft responded to a burglary call at a residence in the 1800 block of Jackson Street. A victim notified APD dispatch after opening his back door and observing two suspects in his backyard. The victim also reported that his car door was open and that his storage shed door was also open. A description of these suspects was provided to responding officers as the suspects fled the scene. Initial attempts to locate the involved suspects were unsuccessful. Officers believe that these suspects fled on foot and that they made at least two trips to the victim’s residence because several pieces of lawn equipment were stolen. Additionally, the victim’s car was believed to have been left unlocked. Suspects stole audio equipment and some cash from the car. Approximately $2,000 in property was reported stolen. One of the suspect’s was described as a tall white male, approximately 6-foot 4. This investigation continues and a report for felony burglary was taken.
