Freedom Estates Barricade

Freedom Estates Barricade

A man with a gun barricaded himself inside a Freedom Estates home until the early hours of Tuesday morning.

It happened just after 10:00 PM Monday night across from Sheppard Air Force Base.

The man was threatening to commit suicide or suicide by cop. 

Wichita Falls Police were seen going in and out of the gated community with S.W.A.T and emergency vehicles. 

Snipers were also on the scene. 

After several hours police made contact with the individual and detained him.

No word from WFPD on what exactly happened.
