Posted: Updated:

A man who caused a three hour standoff Tuesday night in a Wichita Falls apartment complex has surrendered.

Just before 7 P.M. Tuesday evening, Wichita Falls SWAT team and crisis negotiators were called to the 700 block of Warford Street after police responded to a check welfare.

Wichita Falls police say the man was threatening suicide before he finally surrendered to SWAT operators around 10 P.M.
He was taken for an evaluation by mental health professionals.
Police say there were no injuries during the stand-off. But  the incident did cause part of 7th street to be blocked off.

Tune in at noon for more information.
