      The Wichita Falls SWAT team and as many as eighteen other unites were called out to the 1900 block of Ardath Avenue in response to a family disturbance. It happened at around 10:30 p.m. last night and lasted into the first few hours of the day. Police were made aware the subject was potentially suicidal, so they set up a perimeter around the home before they were able to detain and check the subject out.
