The caller reported there was at least one armed individual inside the business. As officers responded to the business, they were update that an off-duty officer at the business had disarmed and detained the individual.
Upon the arrival of officers, they learned the off-duty officer had observed an individual enter the business with a bandana covering the lower portion of his face.
