THREE RIVERS – A man was arraigned on multiple charges following an incident last week in Three Rivers.
Police Chief Tom Bringman says at 10:41 AM on June 7, his department was called to the area of North Main and Portage Streets after a caller saw a man walking with a hand gun. Officers arrived but were not able to locate the subject.
At 12:12 PM, St. Joseph County Central Dispatch received multiple calls about a subject matching the description of the man from earlier in the day. These calls all said the man was waving the gun around, and pointing it at cars and houses.
Residents of the neighborhood assisted officers, who were able to locate 30 year old Kyle Longacre of Three Rivers and take him into custody. Police also found the firearm.
Because of the situation, Bringman says his department requested Hoppin Elementary School go into a lockdown at 10:45 AM. That lasted until 11:10 AM when Hoppin Principal David Soderquist was told the school could resume normal activities.
At 12:15 PM a second lockdown was requested for the school, with no movement allowed. That lockdown was eventually lifted as well.
Longacre was arraigned in St. Joseph County District Court on one count of Carrying A Dangerous Weapon With Unlawful Intent and a Fourth Offense Of Being A Habitual Offender.
