WFPD Swat Dispatched To Home

Wichita Falls Police are looking for a possible suicidal man.

Police were called out the 2000 block of Arthur around 9:30 Thursday night in response to a family violence threat call. In an attempt to locate the suspect, the investigation led officers to the 2700 block of Carrigan Avenue. 

Police say the suspect was inside the home on Carrigan, threatening to harm himself. 

At that time, officers set up a perimeter around the home and activated the protocol for a barricaded subject. Both SWAT and Hostage Negotiators were called to the scene. 

Just before 12:30 Friday morning, SWAT made their way into the home but found the house was empty. The suspect was not found. 

The case remains under investigation. 

Authorities say they are unsure if he is armed but, there is no indication that the suspect poses a risk to the public.
