The owner asked him to leave but he refused and Police were called. While responding, updated information was provided by employees that the suspect may be armed with a gun and would use it on Officers who responded.

Due to the unknown threat posed by the man, K9 RĂ¼diger was on hand but was not utilized during the apprehension.
