Siegel Middle School and Erma Siegel Elementary were briefly placed on lockdown status this Thursday morning around 8.
Murfreesboro Police spokesman Kyle Evans says officers responded to 706 Majesty Drive in reference to an elderly male armed with a gun who appeared to be in an agitated state of mind.
When responding officers arrived, they were able to convince the man to place the gun on the ground. The male subject appeared to suffer from dementia or other mental condition causing confusion and agitation. He was transported to the VA Hospital for evaluation and treatment.
