Carrollton Police ended a brief standoff with an armed man on Tuesday night near Central High School.
Officers responded to Sue Alice Lane at 11:30 p.m. after receiving a report that a shot had been fired. As they were en route, 911 dispatchers informed the officers that 10 more shots had been fired, according to an incident report.
At 11 p.m., Sean Matthew Springer, 46, of Carrollton allegedly fired off one round, prompting his neighbors to call the police. Springer, who was intoxicated, had allegedly had been knocking on the doors of his neighbors and an investigation revealed he had fired approximately 15 rounds.
Springer was inside his residence as officers surrounded his house, according to the report, and a brief standoff lasting approximately 10 minutes, took place.
Springer eventually exited his residence. Officers said he was slurring his speech and was unsteady on his feet as if intoxicated. When he fell to the ground, officers seized the opportunity by moving in on him and handcuffing him.
Springer was transported by an officer to Tanner Medical Center. After this incident was resolved, police discovered 10 guns and 40 loaded magazines, most of which were high capacity, and over 1,400 rounds of ammo.
Police recovered three handguns, two shotguns, and five semi-automatic rifles from the scene.
This is not the first incident between Springer and Carrollton police.
On Jan. 15, Springer caused a school lockdown at Central High School after he fired shots within close proximity to the school and its baseball fields.
For that incident, he was arrested on charges of one count of reckless conduct, one count of disrupting or interfering with a public school, and one count of discharging of firearms on or near a public highway or street.
Springer had not been charged with anything as of Thursday evening and police did not know at the time if he had been released from Tanner Medical Center.
