One man taken into custody after standoff with police

Posted:
KILLEEN - A domestic dispute turns into a standoff with police as a man police considered armed and dangerous was holding a 3-year-old hostage Thursday afternoon.

Police were called out to the 400 block of Taurus Dr. about 12:50 p.m. Thursday about a man that was holding a child there and had a weapon.

Investigators say a 30-year-old man and a woman got into an argument. He had weapons, so the woman ran off, and the man took the woman's 3-year-old son hostage.

Police negotiated with the suspect for about 90 minutes before he surrendered.The standoff ended as the man came out with the child about 2:20 p.m.

The man was taken into custody by police, but officers are not sure what he will be charged with. It is also unclear what the child's relationship is to the man.

Homes nearby were evacuated as a precaution.
