The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that two men with stolen guns had been in a standoff with the Orlando Police Department as Hurricane Irma barreled up the Florida coast towards the Orlando area.

Officers were called to the store after a manager saw suspicious activity on one of the store’s security cameras, police said.

In a 7:22 p.m. post on social media, police said one arrest was made within 10 minutes of the incident, while another suspect held out longer in the store.

Police sent units that including on-duty SWAT team members to the store after one suspect did not surrender immediately.

There were early reports of looters in the Orlando area and many surmised that the standoff outside the Academy Sports was another example of exactly that.

However the Orlando Police Department said that there had been no looting.

Thankfully, the Orlando Police Department was able to end the situation without anyone getting injured.
