9:00 P.M. UPDATE: Around 4:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp told 10News a family member called 9-1-1, worried about a man who wandered off and appeared to be suicidal.

Officers found the man inside a truck in the Maryville Commons shopping center off Watkins Road.

When they approached the truck, they did not see him right away. They attempted knocking on the window's truck. The 67-year-old man did not respond.

An officer noticed a holster for a .45 pistol in the truck.

Police say the man was in the truck for at least two hours before authorities used an armed, protective vehicle to break the truck's window and pull him out.

He was taken to the hospital shortly after for further treatment.

Family members told Maryville police that the individual is an out-of-state relative who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Police have yet to release the man's identity.

The lockdown at the shopping center was lifted around 7 p.m. Sunday evening.
