Teen arrested after Queen Creek Police ask some residents to stay indoors, lock doors

A teenager has been arrested in connection to a shots fired investigation that prompted police to ask Queen Creek residents to remain indoors and lock their doors.

Town officials on Feb. 28 asked people living in the area of Sierra Park Boulevard and Ellsworth Road to take the measures as a precaution while police searched for a person who was believed to be armed.

In a separate statement, Queen Creek Police said their officers responded to reports of shots fired in the area, and two people were detained.

"Police are using a helicopter and UAV to assist in the search," read a portion of the statement.

Officials also said Frances Brandon-Pickett Elementary School, which is located close to the area, was placed on a modified lockdown as a precaution.

Police said late Tuesday night that the third person turned himself in.

On Wednesday, police said the third person, a 16-year-old boy, was arrested and booked into jail.

The other two persons of interest have not been charged at this time.

No injuries or victims were reported.
