In response, the deputy took cover, losing sight of Lindsey.
Two K-9 units were called to track Lindsey. He was eventually located at a home on Tweedy Road

After nearly 30 minutes of appeals broadcasted on a PA system with no response from Lindsey, chemical irritants were used inside the home, according to the sheriff’s office.
More appeals were made, still with no response.
Deputies attempted to break through the front door, but soon realized it had been barricaded with a refrigerator.
