WICHITA COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) -

Newschannel 6 has learned more details in regards to a check welfare call in the 5200 block of FM 1177.

The check welfare call came in around 5:50 p.m. on Tuesday. 

Officials said they received a call about a man who was threatening to kill himself and law enforcement officers.

The man's father left the residence and met deputies at the rodeo grounds nearby. Following their conversation, the SWAT team was called in.

Surveillance was set up around the home. The man was seen going in and out of the backside of the home with a shotgun. 

The last time the man came out of the home he did not have the shotgun and was taken down by the SWAT team around 8:30 p.m.

He was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation.
