Police in south suburban Evergreen Park have captured a psychiatric patient that walked out of Little Company of Mary Hospital Tuesday afternoon.

Chopper 7 HD was over the scene at 94th and California when the patient was captured. Earlier, officers with guns drawn were searching for the man.

Evergreen Park police even put out a robo-call to tell residents to stay inside, lock their doors and take precautions. They also notified nearby schools. Some were already out for the day, but others that were still in session were put on lockdown.

Details on why this patient was considered dangerous have not yet been released.
