A person was arrested after allegedly trying to elude Livermore police during an incident Monday that included a neighborhood sheltering in place after a report of a man with a gun roaming along Pine Street.
The arrestee -- a 36-year-old Livermore man whose name was not released -- was taken into custody on suspicion of resisting arrest and drug charges, according to the Livermore Police Department.
The situation unfolded around 2:20 p.m. Monday when police received a call about a man with a gun in the 1600 block of Pine Street. Responding officers soon began to search the surrounding area, according to police.
"Officers diligently searched for the subject, while also warning surrounding residents to shelter in place for their safety," police said.
Police eventually located their suspect, but he allegedly ignored commands to surrender and led officers on a foot chase. He was ultimately taken into custody in the 600 block of Andrews Street, police said.
Officers then continued to scour the neighborhood and soon found a replica firearm discarded in the area, police said.
Livermore police K-9 units, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office drone team and the East Bay Regional Park District Police Department's air unit all assisted in the search operation.
