HOUSTON - A SWAT response at a southeast Houston home ended peacefully at about 4:50 p.m. after several hours and a man was taken into custody.  

At about 1:25 p.m. it was reported that a man was firing his gun in the street near the 5500 block of Firefly Street near Allen Genoa Road. When police arrived, they say he ran into a home. 

About two hours later, police announced that a SWAT team and negotiators were on scene, trying to resolve the situation. No one else was in the home with him.
