An armed man barricaded himself inside a Grand Prairie home for more than seven hours Wednesday morning.
Police said the man in his 20s first threatened his girlfriend Tuesday evening. Officers responded to the scene in south Grand Prairie, but the suspect had already left.
Early Wednesday morning he allegedly threatened family members at a home on Marshall Drive, east of the President George Bush Turnpike. They managed to get out of the house and call 911 for help, police said.
SWAT officers surrounded the home and for a while had some trouble negotiating with the suspect. They forced their way inside around 10:30 a.m. and took him into custody without any injuries.
Police have not yet identified the suspect, but they said he is a wanted felon.
The American Red Cross helped neighbors who were evacuated because of the standoff.
