At approximately 2:55 pm officers were dispatched to a call for suicide threats on the 13000 block of Northwest Blvd. A short time later the call was upgraded to shots fired at a nearby fast food restaurant. Officers arrived and made contact with an adult male. Officers began a dialogue with the male and determined he was in crisis. Officers from our SWAT/HNT Units were called out to assist. Members from our HNT Unit continued to communicate with the male in an attempt to de-escalate the situation. Eventually less lethal tools were utilized to subdue the offender and he was subsequently placed in custody at approximately 5:00 pm.
We want to thank our officers for their excellent work. An extremely dangerous situation was brought to a peaceful resolution with no injury to any members of our community, our officers or the suspect.
We also want to thank our partners with Texas DPS for their assistance.
