Killeen man arrested following Saturday morning standoff

Posted:
KILLEEN -

A 29-year-old Killeen man was arrested after an early morning standoff with police on Saturday. The standoff took place in the 4200 block Alan Kent Dr. in Killeen and started about 4 a.m.

Daniel Alejandro Velarde faces three charges of assault of a family member or household member by impeding their normal breathing, and is being held in the Bell County Jail.

Officers received a 911 call at 3:45 a.m. on Saturday from a woman who said she had been involved in a domestic disturbance. The woman told officers she had been assaulted by Velarde and he refused to give her their 3-year-old child.

The victim also told officers that Velarde had weapons inside the home and he made several threats to harm her and their child. She was transported to Metroplex Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say they called Velarde, and he told them he was not at home. During the call, police determined that he was at the home, but refused to come out. The Killeen Police Department's Tactical Response Unit was then deployed.

According to police, Velarde surrendered with the child after the Tactical Response Unit broke a window to get a communication device to him. He was taken into custody at 7:30 a.m. and transported to jail.

The child was not harmed during the standoff and has been released to his mother.
