Two men are in jail after a standoff in Killeen on Monday morning. 

Bell county constables say at 9 a.m. they were serving a writ of possession at a home on 551 Brenda Drive near still House Hollow Lake.

When the constable knocked, the man inside threatened to shoot anyone who came in.

The Bell County Sheriff's Department was called in to assist and two hours later they got the man to surrender by gunpoint.

No one was hurt.

He was unarmed but a loaded shot gun was found inside the house along with another person who had marijuana in their possession. 

Precinct 4 Constable Edd Milton said the man who threatened them is a veteran with mental issues. 

The house was in the process of getting repossessed by Veterans Affairs.

The men were identified as Johnathan Matthew Meere, 39, and Jeffrey Lee Allen, 30. 

Both were taken to the Bell County Jail.

Meere is charged with Terroristic Threat. Charges are pending against Allen. 

Their names have not been released.
