what were cops up to on SE Division and along 82nd?

Cops blocked off intersections and were out with guns drawn and with dogs while other cop cars sped way too fast west on Division, while FHS was in lock-down allegedly because of a man with a gun in the park by Atkinson.
One neighbor said that someone quickly left when he saw cops with guns and so was being hunted down. I'm not so scared of civilians, but real scared of cops and military used to justifying killing unarmed, peaceful, law-abiding civilians, and knowing they won't be held accountable for murder or perjury. What happened? What now?
