Man barricades himself in apartments; SWAT standoff

A man has barricaded himself inside an Amarillo apartment complex and the SWAT team is surrounding the area.

Police on the scene tell us around 7:00 this evening a man went to an apartment at Country Club Villas to visit his estranged wife telling her he had flowers.

When she opened the door, the suspect burst in pushing her onto the floor.

He left the apartment and came back with a rifle, and that's when the woman fled the scene and called police.

We're told the suspect is now communicating with police and members of the SWAT team.

We have crews on the scene and will bring you the very latest as it becomes available.
