Cypress Police arrest armed man at Stater Bros.

According to the official Facebook page of the Cypress Police Department, on the late afternoon of August 4 Officers of the Department arrested a male suspect on outstanding warrants at the Stater Bros. grocery store in the shopping center on the southwest corner of Ball Road and Valley View Street:

Tonight at about 5:00 PM, Cypress PD Officers responded to the Stater Brothers at 10051 Valley View after we received calls that a man with a shotgun was inside the store.

Officers arrived within minutes and discovered the man had entered a restroom.

They quickly evacuated the store and, after several minutes of negotiating, convinced the man to exit the restroom.

Officers found the shotgun was, in fact, a pellet gun.

Thankfully, no one was injured during the incident and the man was arrested for several outstanding arrest warrants.
