The occurrence did not result in any injuries being sustained by anyone.
On Tuesday, the police in Texas and a suspect who had allegedly fired a weapon earlier in the day were eventually able to bring an end to a five-hour standoff that had been going on between them.
Juan Andres Rodriguez is accused of forcing his way into a home in Abilene, Texas, which is located west of Dallas, and then refusing to comply with the officers who were there to arrest him.
To aid in the conversations with Rodriguez and to convince him to leave the residence and talk to authorities, there were crisis negotiators, SWAT members, and a bomb truck present at the scene.
The officers moved quickly to acquire a warrant and then entered the premises while armed with bomb truck equipment and tear gas.
