DANGEROUS SUBJECT TAKEN INTO CUSTODY

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.
