Temple police took a man and woman who barricaded themselves into custody on Monday. They were located hiding in an attic crawlspace, according to police.

Police were serving an evidentiary search warrant for firearms and narcotics around 7:30 a.m. at the 5000 block of Charter Oaks Drive.

"Upon officers’ arrival, eight subjects cooperated with officers and exited the residence, and two other subjects barricaded themselves inside the residence," said Temple police.

The subjects were both male and female, ranging in age from mid-30s to their early 50s.

Negotiators attempted contact with the man and woman for hours, according to police. The Killeen Police Department assisted with the standoff and SWAT deployed chemical munitions in the house.

"Following a search of the residence by the Temple Police Department, the two remaining individuals were located secreted in an attic crawlspace," said police.

No shots were fired from either side, and no injuries were reported, according to police.
