Mandeville, La. - Mandeville Police arrested a 46 year-old man who reportedly broke into the home of his estranged wife and threatened to kill her. Police received a frantic 911 call early Saturday morning from a woman who lives in the 800 block of Penn Street.
The woman told the 911 dispatcher that her estranged husband had a gun and that he was trying to force entry into her house and that he was going to kill her.
When police arrived on the scene, shortly after 3:30 am, they could hear the woman victim screaming from a second floor bedroom, begging her husband not to shoot her. Officers made their way upstairs and located David Lockhart and his estranged wife in a bedroom where they intervened and took Lockhart into custody without further incident. The woman was uninjured.
Officers recovered a Winchester model 94 hunting rifle chambered in 30-30 that Lockhart allegedly threw under a bed just before the responding officers made contact with him
