Schools in the search area surrounding SW 248th street and SW 112th Avenue were placed on lockdown during the search.

Sofia Casaca said she got a call from her daughter. “She called me at work and she told me, ‘Mommy we have a code red and then when I saw the news and I see the back of my house I’m like oh my God’.”

Jennifer Jones, a witness, said police searching for Dukes were “on point,” used helicopters and quickly caught him.

Another neighbor named “Doc” said he’d never seen Dukes before the arrest.  “They just put him in handcuffs. They say they got one more to go,” he said.

Several hours later, police say Guzman was taken into custody by detectives with the Street Terror Offender Program (STOP).
