KILLEEN - Police were in a standoff for several hours Monday evening at a Killeen Apartment complex near Herford and Elms Street.

It started around 1:30 p.m. when officials tried to serve a warrant to a 24-year-old man for sexual assault.

The man barricaded himself inside while SWAT members tried to contact him.

At one point, police threw flash bangs and fired tear gas into the apartment.

Authorities caught the man after a 4 1/2 hour standoff in another person's apartment. They are unsure how he made it into the second room at this time.
