Ray Schools go on lockdown as precaution against possible armed man

The entire Ray School District was put in lockdown Friday morning following a report of the possibility of a man in the desert area below the schools with a weapon.

The initial call that came into the Kearny Police Department indicated that the subject, 26-year-old Ryan Anthony Chiquete of Kearny, left a residence on the 400 block of Fairhaven carrying a shotgun after a heated argument with Marco Kame, who lives in the home.

Officers immediately responded and began searching the area. The lockdown order was put into place as a precautionary measure since the department at the time didn’t know what they were dealing with.

After further questioning of Kame, police learned that Chiquete was carrying a holstered pistol, not a shotgun. Kame stated that Chiquete did not remove the weapon from the holster during the altercation, but he did pound on the holster and say “Boom” before taking off towards the desert.

The search that lasted over an hour was called off with negative results and the lockdown was lifted.

Later Chiquete showed up at the police department and confirmed what Kame had reported. He was arrested for threatening and intimidating and was transported and booked into the Pinal County Adult Detention Center in Florence.
