APD said the contact was not sanctioned by the department.

In a tweet posted Tuesday, APD officials said "APD opposes vigilante actions and attempts by civilians to intervene in planned, peaceful protests. We also discourage the presence of armed civilians at protests, which has the potential to escalate violence, not prevent it."

This is a developing story.
