Armed Man Causes Lockdown At St. Joseph’s School

An apparently armed and suicidal person prompted a brief lockdown at the St. Joseph’s Indian School campus in Chamberlain.  Police responded to the school Tuesday afternoon after a report that a former
school employee was on campus with a handgun, threatening to kill himself.  Police Chief Joe Hutmacher says that officers chased the man when he fled on foot and eventually subdued him with a stun gun. He was taken into custody but not immediately charged with a crime.  Police say they recovered a handgun from the man’s vehicle on campus.  The school was on lockdown for fewer than 10 minutes.
