Killeen standoff ends peacefully Tuesday night

Posted:
KILLEEN - Killeen Police officers were called to 1908 Sunset Street around 1 p.m. in reference to a felony warrant service.

Upon their arrival, they made contact with a woman who told them that the man they were looking for was not inside the home. When she stepped outside to speak with them, the officers noticed someone moving around inside. That lead them to believe that the wanted person was actually inside the home. Officers tried to talk to the suspect for more than an hour, but he refused to respond.

The Killeen Police Tactical Response Unit was called to the house around 2:30. The team tried negotiating with the man for more than two hours, asking him to surrender, but he ignored their commands. Tear gas was eventually deployed into the home, which encouraged the man to surrender. He was taken into custody around 5:45 without incident.

The 29-year-old has outstanding warrants for possession of a controlled substance and probation violation for possession of a firearm by a felon. His name is being withheld pending arraignment.

Shortly afterwards, the 26-year-old woman was also taken into custody and charged with hindering apprehension. Her name is being withheld pending formal charges from the Bell County District Attorney's Office.
