HOUSTON – A suspect was taken into custody Tuesday evening, ending a SWAT standoff in southeast Houston.

According to Houston police, officers were dispatched to a home in the 5100 block of French Creek Drive for a disturbance call. Police were told that a man who had multiple warrants was inside a garage and armed with a rifle.

Officers were familiar with the person in question and the location. They devised a plan and quickly surrounded the house, police said.

The armed man barricaded himself inside the home and refused to come out, and officers called for backup.

Three people who were inside with the suspect came out, unharmed, and the man eventually gave up and surrendered. He was taken into custody without incident.

Police said the man had six felony warrants out of Harris County.
