Man in Custody Following a 3 Hour Standoff in Flour Bluff

CORPUS CHRISTI - A three hour standoff in Flour Bluff ended without injury Thursday Night.

Around 5:00p.m. a suicidal man called 9-1-1 threatening to harm himself at a home on Military Drive.

When police got to the house, the man refused to come out.

They closed off the street in front of the house and tried to negotiate with him.

He was possibly armed with a knife and a pipe but police say he never threatened anyone else.

Just before 8:00p.m., Swat officers finally went into the house and took him down.

After that, he was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.

Police say he probably won't face any charges.
