Update: Police Searching for Armed Man in Blenman Elm Neighborhood

Posted By on Wed, Feb 28, 2007 at 10:19 AM

If you live in the Blenman Elm neighborhood in the University area near Tucson Boulevard and are at home, please be alert and cautious. Police are currently searching for an armed suspect in that area. They have blocked off street entrances at the Tucson intersection and are also searching backyards of homes near Speedway Boulevard.

I counted at least six parked patrol cars with lights flashing near the intersection of Speedway and Tucson, and police have advised a friend of mine who lives in the area to stay below the windows of her home while they search her backyard.

Update: Police left the area around noon, but are following leads in the neighborhood. I don't know if they caught him or not, but they are looking for a hispanic male between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-11. He dropped the gun in my friend's neighbor's backyard as he was fleeing over fences.
