A tense standoff involving the SWAT team in a League City neighborhood concluded with the apprehension of a man who, according to the police, fled on foot after being pulled over during a traffic stop.
SkyEye’s cameras captured numerous officers wearing tactical gear outside a residence on San Remo Lane in the Tuscan Lakes subdivision on early Tuesday evening. The individual at the center of the standoff was wanted for an aggravated assault charge.
The League City Police Department stated that the incident originated when a passenger in a pulled-over vehicle provided false information.
This individual then fled on foot, traversed yards, dropped an unidentified firearms magazine at a school parking lot, and continued through the neighborhood.
The suspect subsequently entered a home with an open garage and rushed inside, prompting a family with children and dogs to run out. Upon the arrival of law enforcement, the suspect barricaded himself inside the home and fired two shots at officers, as reported by LCPD. Eventually, the suspect surrendered around 7:30 p.m.
No injuries were reported among the residents of the home. Eyewitness News interviewed the homeowner, who was visibly shaken and declined to speak on camera.
During the incident, police instructed neighbors to stay indoors. Additionally, a nearby daycare center was put on lockdown due to the unfolding situation.
