CHANDLER, AZ — Police have arrested a man who chased his wife down a street in Chandler armed with a gun on Thursday afternoon, prompting a temporary lockdown at several schools.
Officers say a woman called 911 around 12:30 p.m. saying her husband was chasing her down the street with a gun. Officers spent several hours searching for the woman's husband, 54-year-old Robert Hise, in a neighborhood near McClintock Drive and the Loop 202 Santan.
The Chandler Police Department says Pueblo Middle School and Paloma Elementary were on lockdown for several hours and people living in the neighborhood were asked to temporarily shelter in place while officers and SWAT searched the area.
The lockdown was lifted around 3:30 p.m. and police took down the perimeter just before 5 p.m.
Chandler police say Hise was found and taken into custody without incident near 56th Street and Chandler Boulevard around 7 p.m. Hise is facing multiple felony charges, police say.
