Several emergency vehicles are parked on a street near Sugar Land, Texas, on Oct. 31, 2017.

SUGAR LAND, Texas - Four people are in custody Tuesday after a home invasion and manhunt in Fort Bend County near Sugar Land, deputies said.

The incident was reported about 2:15 p.m. at a home on Bucks Bridge Lane, near the intersection of State Highway 6 and West Airport Boulevard.

A woman inside the home said she heard three men breaking into the back door and yelling, according to deputies.

The woman told deputies she hid inside the home and called 911.

The men ran off when law enforcement arrived.

A tweet from the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office said that a K-9 was used in the search, and people who live in the area were being asked to stay indoors.

About an hour later, deputies said in a tweet that "all suspects" were in custody.

Officials at the Fort Bend Independent School District said that students at nearby Rita Drabek Elemntary School and Kempner High School were being dismissed with extra security precautions.
