The scene quickly escalated off Winkler Avenue Tuesday afternoon

"He's moving he's moving.

Blocks of roads closed down

Police in full tactical gear surrounding this blue and white home

"We're reacting or their safety the safety of all the officers

involved and the entire community" Rodriguez, FMPD

Many living nearby like Honey Roof were asked to leave their homes

"When they escorted us to our car at gunpoint we said wow its time to go

Roof said she was more concerned about the elementary school up the road

"Not one time did they mention there was a school next door if it had

happened an hour earlier"

Police says this man Thomas Murray is responsible for the scare.

A convicted felon who according to police could very well have been a

threat not only to himself but others.

"It was a little bit outside the norm of what we normally see you know

this isn't just somebody inside we gathered a lot of intelligence on

mr murray" Rodriguez

According to Murray's arrest report, his wife had been concerned with

his declining mental health because he was "experiencing some sort of

mental break-down"

And had made comments of "going out with a bang or creating a big scene"

Police say Murray's wife also told them he had the weapons and tools to do.

"I'm glad nobody got hurt"

By the time police made entry into the home Murray was spotted hiding

on the roof of his shed in the backyard

Police say he then tried to make a break for it in a nearby canal, he

was tazed and then taken into custody.

"We just wanted to end it peacefully which we did" Return to index of stories...
