East Dallas Standoff Ends Peacefully
An armed man surrendered to Dallas police, ending the impasse at a townhouse building near I-30 and Ferguson. Part of the White Rock Hills Townhome complex was evacuated while officers negotiated. It began about 1 a.m. when the man reportedly took two women hostage. Early on, neighbors reported hearing a gunshot although police have not confirmed that. The SWAT team surrounded the building and spent five hours trying to talk the man into giving it up before he finally did just that around 6 a.m. when he walked out, with the two women, who did not appear to be hurt.
