Three hour standoff ends peacefully

WACO - A three hour standoff in South Waco came to an end peacefully Thursday night.

Edward Alvarado, 43, was wanted for a number of warrants. U.S. Marshals were serving Alvarado with four county felony warrants of possession of a fire arm, two counts of illegal body armor and one count of possession of a controlled substance. U.S. Marshals were trying to serve those warrants on Alvarado when he ran into a nearby home in the 1400 block of 26th street. Police aren't sure who's home that was.

Alvarado barricaded  himself inside, and there was a good chance he had weapons. Waco PD's S.W.A.T Unit was called in. Police spokesman Sgt. Patrick Swanton was negotiating with Alvarado through a loud speaker.

Many residents in the area were forced to evacuate their homes.

At 8:15 p.m., tear gas was fired into the attic, where police knew Alvarado was hiding. Police say he fell through the ceiling and then surrendered on the front lawn.

There were no injuries, but as suspected, police did find weapons inside that home. 

Alvarado was booked in the McLennan County jail.
