On Nov. 10 around 7 a.m., Nixa officials sent a press release stating Spain was considered a runaway juvenile who was believed to be armed, and he made threats to harm law enforcement officers.

At about 11:25 a.m., police say Spain arrived at a home in Nixa where he confronted a resident, pointed a handgun at them and demanded the keys to their car.

He fled from the scene in a stolen vehicle.

Two hours later, Spain was found by SPD.
