A man who was found armed with several guns and wearing military-style clothes was arrested last week in Flower Mound after threatening to kill a person he blamed for ruining his marriage, police said.
The Leader reported Wednesday that 34-year-old Robert Hulsey, of Lewisville, blamed an employee at a local business for "the dissolution of his marriage," and was planning on carrying out a murder when the business opened.
Police were first called at 7 a.m. to investigate a suspicious person at a shopping center in the 500-block of Flower Mound Road on Tuesday, Nov. 7. The shopping center is located about one block west of Lewisville High School Harmon.
A witness told police a man driving a black SUV was asking questions about an employee of a business at the shopping center. The man appeared to be armed with two AR-15-style rifles and looked "like military," police told The Leader.
Less than an hour later, officers located Hulsey parked behind a church blocks away from the shopping center. He matched the witness's description and was found with two long guns in the front seat of his SUV.
According to The Leader, police recovered a number of guns and ammunition items from the SUV, including:
- One 12-gauge shotgun
- One AR-15 long rifle
- One .22 long rifle
- One 30.06 long rifle
- 100 rounds of 9 mm ammunition

Hulsey was arrested and charged with one count of attempted murder. He was said to be cooperating with detectives.
