SWAT Standoff

A SWAT standoff in an Amarillo neighborhood comes to an end after several hours.  A man finally surrendered after barricading himself inside a home.

It all started right before midnight Friday night and ended at 5:00 a.m.

Authorities say officers were sent to the home on a family disturbance call.  Someone told police a man was inside, armed with a weapon and wouldn't come out.

Then at around 2:00 a.m. a SWAT team and hostage negotiators arrived.  Three more hours passed and the man surrendered and was taken into custody.

The incident is still under investigation.
