On 08-03-2022 at 0110 hours, a male called 911 stating that he had killed two people, and he was going to kill anyone that showed up at his house. Officers arrived and surrounded the residence and were able to gain verbal contact with the male through open windows. The male was holding a large kitchen knife and stated that he was hearing voices. HNT was able to dialogue with the male, and he eventually came out of the residence, still holding the knife. Through continued dialogue and rapport building, HNT was able to get him to drop the knife and step away from the front door. He then reached behind his back towards the small of his back like he was reaching for a weapon and said, “look what I have”. A 40 mm was deployed, and the male was successfully detained. The residence was searched, and no one else was inside. The male was subsequently transported to HMC via AMR for mental health treatment.
