One gun was located outside the home, according to TPD. Another was located when Bracamonte was arrested.

The investigation resulted in a closed street and lockdown orders for three area schools in the Sunnyside Unified School District.

Police say a woman inside a home at that location told police two men armed with guns broke into her home and asked for money and drugs.

When police arrived at the scene, a man fled when he saw them. Police saw a second man, Palomerez exit the house, but he went back in when he saw them. Palomarez was later detained as he tried to flee over the backyard wall.

Three Sunnyside USD were placed under lockdown orders because of the police activity in the neighborhood. Students were eventually dismissed from all of the schools.

According to Mary Veres of Sunnyside Unified School District, Sunnyside High School and Sierra 2-8 school were affected. Drexel Elementary was also locked down, according to a SUSD tweet.

Veres said there was no threat to the schools.

Students and staff were kept inside just a precaution, Veres said.
