Standoff in Killeen ends peacefully, man detained
KILLEEN, TX -- A standoff at a Central Texas residence has ended peacefully with an assault suspect caught and neighbors who evacuated during the more than 15-hour siege allowed to return home.
Killeen police say the incident ended around 5 a.m. Monday. The man faces an assault charge against a woman from a domestic dispute Sunday afternoon. She managed to flee and call for help.
Police spokeswoman Carroll Smith says officers were speaking with the woman when the man threatened to harm himself. He allegedly had weapons and barricaded himself inside the residence. Neighbors were evacuated as a precaution.
Officers spoke with the suspect until he was taken into custody and transported to the Killeen City Jail. His name and further details on the woman weren't immediately released.
