Police arrested a man after they say he holed up inside a home in Fort Worth for five hours.

Police say the man, whose name was not immediately released, stayed inside the house until tear gas was fired.  A short time later, the man came out of the house and was arrested.

The shooting victim, whose name was also not immediately released, was taken to a hospital in serious condition. 

At one point, a small fire started either by the man or the tear gas was put out.  No one else was hurt.

The man is being charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
