The disturbance began after the man’s parents called police with concerns about their son’s welfare and state of mind after he left a Meadowlakes home on foot.
“There were concerns that he may or may not have had a weapon when he left the residence on foot,” Burnet County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Mike Sorenson said. “We were looking for him and were able to determine he did not have a gun, but we still couldn’t locate him.”
As the search continued, officers recovered a weapon linked to the man.
“We did find the weapon he supposedly had, and it’s been secured,” Sorenson said.
The man left the area and is no longer deemed a threat by the Sheriff’s Office, Sorenson continued.
