AMARILLO, Texas — Police reportedly detained a 36-year-old man who hid inside the auditorium of Hillside Christian Church in the 6100 Soncy Road about noon Wednesday.

Reports say the incident prompted church leaders to lock down the campus and dozens of officers to surround the area.

Cpl. Jerry Neeufeld said police convinced David Michael Stoltz to leave the sanctuary and he was taken into custody about 1 p.m. He said no one was injured.

Hillside Executive Pastor Bob Schroeder said everyone inside the church was safe and deferred all other questions about the situation to police.
