An armed suspect in Wichita Falls has been taken to the state hospital for evaluation after barricading himself in his home.

According to WFPD, officers were called out the 1800 block of Lucille around 1:15 a.m. Friday morning.

Family members told officers a white male in his 30's was alone with a knife and possible firearms, threatening to harm himself and officers.

Just after 4 a.m. Friday morning, they were able to make contact with the suspect, who then came out of the house, unharmed.

There were no injuries reported.

First responders and AMR were also on scene in case medical attention was needed.
